Gavin DeGraw sent a message to fans on Friday, nearly two weeks after the singer was brutally attacked on the streets of New York City.

Instead of checking in from the tour, I'm writing as I recover at home. I'm feeling much better, but it will take a little bit more time to be back 100%! I'm overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from my fans, friends, and family, the singer wrote in a statement released to VH1.

I can't wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon. I'll keep you POSTED, he added.

DeGraw was in the middle of a North American tour with Maroon 5 and Train when he was hospitalized on Aug. 7. The singer was attacked by three males in the East Village neighborhood after leaving a nearby bar. He was also hit by a cab as he was stumbling away from the attackers.

The 34-year-old crooner was left with a concussion, broken nose and other injuries, according to several reports.

On Aug. 11, it was announced that DeGraw would return to the stage on Aug. 24 to wrap up his touring duties. While the singer was forced to cancel eight shows, no update has been given on whether or not DeGraw will delay the release of his upcoming fourth studio album, Sweeter, scheduled for a Sept. 20 release date.

During his recovery, DeGraw has been using Twitter to update fans on his health. The singer even commented on the recent Indiana State Fair stage catastrophe.

Sending my thoughts to the victims of the Indy state fair . . . so sorry to hear about that tragedy, he wrote on Aug. 16.

No arrests have been made since the Aug. 7 attack.
