Amy Winehouse has completed her third album, but its release is set to be delayed after the singer was readmitted to rehab, according to reports yesterday (May 29).

The People reports that sources at the singer's record label have said that the long awaited follow-up to Winehouse's 2007 second album 'Back To Black' is finished and that they were just days away from scheduling an official release date, but have been forced to delay this until the singer completes her stint in rehab, which she entered on Thursday (May 26).

The source said: "She has finally finished the album and it's ready to go. They [Island Records] were just about to finalise a release date and then this happened. She is back in rehab for the foreseeable future so it is just a question of waiting and seeing now. But there is no way they can give a specific release date until they know when she is likely to be out."



Amy Winehouse is currently booked to appear at three European festivals during the summer, including the BBK festival in Bilbao, Spain. She has yet to give an indication as to whether she will be performing new material at the festivals.

There has been no comment yet as to whether her spell in rehab will affect any live commitments.
