Ryan Adams had planned to release three albums this year, the first of which, Big Colors, was due out April 19. Variety reports that Big Colors is now “on hold” following allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse from several women against him.

Universal Music Group has removed Big Colors from its release schedule, retailers told Variety, and Adams’ own Pax-Am label has deleted the pre-order page for the album from its website.

Benson, an amplifier company, has also discontinued its relationship with Adams, Variety reports. “We are saddened and surprised by the recent allegations against Mr. Ryan Adams as documented in the New York Times,” Christopher Benson said in a statement. “We have decided to suspend our relationship with Mr. Adams at this moment, and will no longer move forward with the development of the Ryan Adams signature model. We have no further comment at this time.”

The F.B.I. has opened an inquiry into Adams’ allegedly sexually explicit communication with an underage girl. He denies the allegations.
