The “Joyride” is over, at least for now. After singing the National Anthem at Dodgers Opening Day on Monday (Apr. 4), Tinashe announced that her “Joyride World Tour” is being cut short so she can finish her sophomore album.
“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 via Facebook. “Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
“My two biggest loves are music and my fans, and it is never my intention to disappoint anyone,” she continued. “I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date. Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it.”
The North American leg wraps April 10 in Vancouver, B.C. The European leg, which was set to kick off April 26 in Copenhagen, won’t go on as planned.
But don’t worry. The “Joyride,” which began in late February, will continue soon, according to Tinashe.
“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,” she wrote. “If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.”
The singer will be doing a live Facebook Q&A to respond to questions on Thursday (Apr. 7).
