Image Credit: Maury Phillips/WireImage.comRespected Canadian producer-artist Daniel Lanois has canceled all upcoming tour dates after a motorcycle crash in L.A. this past Saturday, a press release announced today. “Lanois suffered multiple injuries but is expected to be released from intensive care soon,” the release states. “Due to the severity of the injuries, Lanois…will be recuperating for the next two months.” He had previously scheduled a European tour for this July.

Lanois is best known for his close working relationships with the likes of Bob Dylan (Oh Mercy, Time Out of Mind) and U2 (The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, All That You Can’t Leave Behind, and more). He has also released several albums of his own material, and recently started a new trio called Black Dub. The press release says Black Dub “will release their debut album when circumstances permit.”

The Music Mix sends its best wishes for Lanois’ speedy and full recovery.
