John Mayer has been forced to cancel two concerts and postpone the release of his new album due to ill health.

The 'Half Of My Heart' singer announced that a planned gig in Los Angeles with Tony Bennett and a second date in Las Vegas next weekend had been axed due to the discovery of a granuloma - an inflamed nodule of tissue - near his vocal chords.

"I'm bummed to have to bow out," Mayer wrote on Tumblr. "I know there were people depending on me to be there and I'm sorry that I can't be on those stages."

The 33-year-old added that his fifth studio LP Born And Raised would be postponed until late next year due to his vocal issues.

"[The album] is complete as far as music recording, song selection and in some cases mixing, but because of this condition I couldn't finish singing on several of the tracks," he explained.

"This is a temporary setback, though I'm not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I've got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear."
