If you're a fan of Kanye West who does NOT live in Australia, we have some great news for you: Yeezy's seventh studio album is coming soon!

Live Nation Australia & New Zealand recently tweeted that seven upcoming Yeezus Tour dates have been postponed "due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his new album."

And in case you savvy Internet cynics are assuming this is just a big April Fools' Joke, here's this tweet:

Kanye has reportedly been working with Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin and A Tribe Called Quest legend/G.O.O.D. Music signee Q-Tip on his seventh studio effort. No word on the release date, but if he's postponing live dates in September, expect a fall release.

This isn't the first time he's delayed Yeezus Tour dates. Last fall a nasty tour bus crash forced Kanye to postpone several U.S. dates, which meant fans had to wait a little bit longer to get Confederate Flag-emblazoned merch.
