London: Troubled singer Amy Winehouse`s entry to the rehab has delayed the release of her much-awaited third album.

The 27-year-old British singer, who entered The Priory clinic on Wednesday to fight her alcohol addiction again after relapsing, has led the bosses of the record label to postpone her plans of releasing the album, reported Contactmusic.

The `Back to Black` hitmaker, who has been battling drink and drunk addiction, was admitted to the facility to get her ready for the upcoming gigs in Europe this summer, says her publicist.

But a recent report has suggested about a delayed return to provide more time to the singer to recover fully.

"She has finally finished the album and it`s ready to go. They 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 she is likely to be out," said a source.

A statement from Winehouse`s representative previously revealed, "She will remain at the Priory on doctor`s advice."
