Diana Krall album delayed

Record set for release in February.

Nanaimo’s Diana Krall has been forced to reschedule the release of her upcoming record

October and November will have plenty of quiet nights for Nanaimo’s Diana Krall.

The eight-time Grammy Award winner has been forced to push back the release of her upcoming album, Wallflower,  as well as her North American tour because of “ongoing complications” from a case of pneumonia.

“I’m deeply saddened that I will have to postpone the release of my new album Wallflower and the Wallflower U.S. fall tour until next year,” Krall said in a press release. “I’ve been battling a severe case of pneumonia and am under doctor’s orders to rest for the next few months in order to regain my strength and good health.”

The Look of Love singer had planned to release her new album on Oct. 21 to Universal Music, but will instead release it on Feb. 2.

“It is frustrating to be so close to the record release and have to delay, but I am very proud of this record and want to be able to give you all my very best when we finally present this music to you,” the Nanaimoite added.

The five-time Juno Award winner was also scheduled to begin her Wallflower tour in Phoenix later this month. However, the entire tour, which includes stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco,  Chicago, New York, Miami, Atlantic City, N.J., and Niagara Falls, N.Y., has also been moved to next February. The tour had no Canadian dates on it.

“Performing is both a privilege and a joy for me,” Krall explained. “When I go out on stage I want to be able to give it everything. Taking this time to rest and recuperate will allow me to do that.”
