NEW YORK — Kanye West has postponed his May tour of Australia so he can concentrate on new music.

West announced Tuesday that he'll postpone seven dates in five cities scheduled for May 2 to 11 until Sept. 5 to 15 because of "unexpected timing requirements" to finish his new album, expected to be released later this year.
