Erykah Badu has postponed the release of her fifth studio album New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) to March 30.

The record, which was originally due out on February 23, includes production from 9th Wonder, James Poyser, J Dilla and Madlib,

Bilal and Lil Wayne appear on the download-only track 'Jump In The Air', which was scrapped from the physical release after parts of it leaked on the internet in December.

Discussing the album last month, Badu told Billboard: "I called it Part II: The Return of the Ankh because this album is the sister of the left side of my brain, it is the right side.

"Part I was the left side of my thoughts, it was more socially political and my thought process was more analytical.

"This time there wasn't anything to be concerned with, the album is more emotional and flowy and talks about feelings. It reminds of the days of Baduizm, this is just about beats and rhymes in a cipher."
