GRAMMY-winning singer Alicia Keys has pushed back the release date of her forthcoming album to 2 December (03) to give herself more time to plan her tour.
The FALLIN' beauty's DIARY OF ALICIA KEYS had originally been scheduled to hit shops on 18 November (03) - the same day Britney Spears' new record was due, until she too delayed it.
Keys says in a statement, "It is very important to me to spend more time on the road playing for my fans. In order to make it to all the cities I wanted to play, we needed to extend the schedule, therefore the release date has changed. I love my album and can't wait to share my music with the people that have been so supportive from the beginning."
