Singer Akon will release his new album Stadium later this year and is planning a world tour to go along with it.
The 43-year-old “Smack That” rapper is still figuring out a release date for his fourth studio LP, the follow up to 2008’s “Freedom,” reported Femalefirst.
“The album “Stadium” will be released this year, we are in the mixing stages at the moment and it is being recorded at the moment. Hopefully in a few weeks we will be releasing the actual release date for it, which I am looking forward to for sure,” Akon said.
The singer, who hasn’t done an official tour since the ‘OMG Tour with Usher’ in 2011, can’t wait to get back on the stage.
“We will be lining up an official tour for this album. But you will catch me doing spot dates every once and a while at some place in the world, that’s what I’ve been doing for forever. I can’t remember actually doing an official tour. But
this time we are going to actually schedule an actual tour.
“It will definitely be a worldwide tour because we do have a lot of territory to cover, but the dates will depend on the album release date. So once I get that surely after we will have the tour dates and I will announce it,” he said.
