Cat Power has said she may have to cancel her European tour.

The singer was due to come to the UK for a one-off show later this year at London's Roundhouse on December 12. It would be her first UK gig in over four years. The show is part of a full European run of shows that also includes gigs in Amsterdam, Koln, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Milan, Bologna, Zurich, Paris and Brussels.

Earlier today, she posted a photo onto her Instagram, with the message: "I may have to cancel my European tour due to bankruptcy and my health struggle with angioedema. I have not thrown in any towel, I am trying to figure out what best I can do."

She added: "Heart broken. Worked so hard. Got sick day after 'Sun' came out and been struggling to keep all points of me in equilibrium: mind, spirit, body healthy, centered and grounded. I am doing the best I can. I fucking love this planet. I refuse to give up. Though I may need to restrategise for my security and health."

Cat Power - real name Chan Marshall - released her ninth album 'Sun' this autumn. It follows the singer-songwriter's 2008 covers album 'Jukebox' and 2006's 'The Greatest' and was recorded in various locations including a studio built by Marshall in Malibu. Read NME's review of 'Sun' here.
