It’s been more than seven months since Tinashe announced her “new era” by premiering a trippy trailer for her sophomore album, Joyride. Yet despite kicking off a world tour and releasing a string of new tunes since then, Joyride is still stuck in release limbo.
That’s why the 23-year-old announced Tuesday night that she’s canceled the rest of her Joyride tour in an effort to finish the long-awaited LP.
“It is with a heavy heart that I come with the news that due to unexpected recording commitments I need to postpone my upcoming international tour,” she wrote in a message to fans on Facebook. “Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
“I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date,” she continued. “Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it. I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you.”
Tinashe’s Joyride tour was scheduled to begin its European leg later this month before hitting Australia in May. Instead, it’ll culminate after 28 shows on April 10 in Vancouver. And while many fans will understandably be disappointed by the change in plans, at least we’re all one step closer to finally hearing Joyride in all its hyped-up glory.
