“I’m back,” was Smith’s simple message.

Smith earlier announced that he would resume performing on July 3 at a festival in England’s Thetford Forest.

Upcoming dates include the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Smith, who had been touring with little break as his career grew, canceled shows in April when doctors noticed a vocal cord hemorrhage following a performance in Sydney.
