NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West has postponed his May tour of Australia so he can concentrate on new music.
West announced Tuesday that he'll postpone seven dates in five cities scheduled for May 2 to 11 until Sept. 5 to 15 because of "unexpected timing requirements" to finish his new album, expected to be released later this year.
The announcement included no other details about the 36-year-old Grammy Award-winning rapper-producer's new album. The follow-up to 2013's divisive but critically acclaimed "Yeezus" LP will be one of 2014's most anticipated releases.
