John Mayer delays album, cancels concerts due to voice issues

New album delayed until next year

Singer John Mayer has had to cancel two of his upcoming concerts and postponed the release of his next album because of issues he is having with this vocal cords.

Mayer made the announcement to fans on his blog saying that he is battling problems with his vocal cords and is “bummed out” that he has to cancel his shows.  He said;

“After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma. I’m bummed to have to bow out of both the iheartradio Music Festival in Las Vegas and an appearance with Tony Bennett in Los Angeles. I know there were people depending on me to be there and I’m sorry that I can’t be on those stages.”

John went on to talk about his upcoming album, saying that while most of his new album is complete there are still portions that need vocal work, and because of his throat issues his album wont’ be released until next year.  He said;

“‘Born and Raised’ is complete as far as music recording, song selection, and in some cases mixing, but because of this condition I couldn’t finish singing on several of the tracks. This means the record will be released next year instead of this fall or winter. This is a temporary setback, though I’m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I’ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear. Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village.”
