Kanye West Reschedules Australian Tour to Supposedly Start Work on a New Album
Rather than leave a three-year solo gap between releases (two years, if you count Watch The Throne), Kanye West appears to already be putting together a follow-up to last year’s successful Yeezus.
West’s plans, however, involve postponing the Australian leg of his tour. According to a press statement, West’s Australian tour is being moved from early in May to September this year. Promoters further commented that the news isn’t an April Fool’s prank.
The statement read: “Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia.”
Not all are satisfied, however. Some fans claim West rescheduled his tour to focus, instead, on his wedding to Kim Kardashian.
Nevertheless, not all of West’s spring and summer shows are being moved. As of now, his U.K. and European festivals are still a go.
Right now, very little is known about the follow-up to Yeezus. Multiple producers have spoken about working with West. Q-Tip spoke about working with the “Bound 2” rapper, with Rick Rubin getting involved. As well, French Montana, in promoting his own Mac & Cheese 4, revealed he had been working with West.
Yeezus came out last June, opening at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 327,000 copies its first week.
