Charli XCX cancels upcoming UK tour to finish record

The rising pop starlet apologizes; promises refunds and rescheduled dates.

Announced last month, the tour was to be the Hertfordshire singer’s first headlining one, following a stint opening for Coldplay.

Instead, the singer will tour the UK early next year, after the release of her debut album’s first single, ‘You’, which will be out in January.

Charli’s full statement (converted from Kanyesque all caps) is below, followed by a recent video for ‘So Far Away.’

To all my UK fans. I’m so sorry that my November UK tour is cancelled. I had to take some time out to completely sit down and finish my record. I have been lucky enough to be presented with some really exciting opportunities of late, and really want to make the most of them. This will allow me to make the best record possible for my fans, and really that is what it’s all about.

I am sorry that if by cancelling i have let any of you down. You will all get refunds, and if you still wish to see me perform i will be touring the UK early next year after the release of my first single, ‘You’ which will be out in January. I filmed the video yesterday and it is going to be totally amazing! I wanted to tour around this single because then the tour will be able to be bigger and better and way more amazing.

Sorry if this is annoying. I hope you guys understand. Peace and love, Charli XCX
