Usher delaying album

Usher has postponed the original release date of his forthcoming eighth studio LP, UR.

Usher’s new album “isn’t scheduled anymore”.

The 35-year-old singer recently released two singles from his forthcoming LP, UR, including a track he cut with Nicki Minaj called She Came to Give It to You.

But the star has now postponed his eighth studio offering, revealing he wants to fine-tune the music a bit more.

“The album isn’t scheduled anymore. I’ve basically taken it back. I’m taking my time with it,” he told Billboard. “At the end of the day, all of this is just about having fun. You get in the studio [and] go with how you feel.”

Usher is collaborating with hitmakers Diplo, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, Jermaine Dupri, Skrillex and Drake on songs for UR.

And he thinks the track he’s creating with fellow crooner Chris Brown is particularly exciting.

“There is another record that we worked on for the album. The relationship is great… we’ve been able to build,” Usher explained.

The star announced the tour dates for his The UR Experience Tour last week, after teasing fans with a one-minute video of himself preparing to take the stage. And he believes concertgoers will walk away with their minds blown.

“The UR Experience is not typical and unexpected,” he told MTV News previously.

“I will tell you, by the end of the night, you will have an experience that only you will remember. You know you’ve had those one concerts you went to in your childhood, there’s this moment in your life that you’re like, ‘Man, that concert — I just wish I could relive in that moment?’ That’s what I’m trying to create — that’s what I’m creating every single night.”

The 28-date UR Experience Tour will launch in Bell Centre, Montreal November 1.

The trek continues through Canada and the US, wrapping in Tampa, Florida December 14.
