Singer IU has delayed the release of her new album, which was supposed to come out early next month.
"IU will tease one song from the album on Nov. 1, but the exact release date of the album will be decided later," her management agency said on Monday.
The singer wrote to her fans a day earlier on a website run by her fans that she "personally needs time to let go," suggesting that she might not be ready for the album after the death of one of her closest friends, Sulli, in an apparent suicide last week.
But the agency said IU will proceed with her scheduled tour of major cities including Seoul, Incheon and Busan, starting in Gwangju on Nov. 10. She also plans to embark on an Asian tour in December, which includes stops in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
