Adele is again canceling concerts because of throat troubles.

Her 10-city U.S. concert run was to start in New Jersey on Friday. But in a statement released Tuesday, those performances were canceled, blamed on a hemorrhage into her vocal chord.

The best-selling British soul singer canceled some U.S. concert dates in April because of laryngitis.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer said she’s “truly devastated” and annoyed. She said in the statement she has no choice but to rest and recuperate properly or risk permanent damage to her voice. She said she’s going to start vocal rehab soon.

She apologized to her fans.
