It looks like Drake won’t get his birthday wish of offering fans some new music on Oct. 24. The Young Money superstar has announced that he is pushing back the release of his second album ‘Take Care’ from Oct. 24 to Nov. 15. Not only that, he’s also postponing his Club Paradise Tour until 2012.

On his October’s Very Own blog, Drizzy explained that he had to delay the album’s release because of sample clearances. “So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date,” he wrote. “My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it.”

Drake also postponed his Club Paradise Tour until after the holiday season. The R&B crooner plans to release a revised list of tour dates next week.

Read Drake’s entire message below:

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.
