Kanye West has revealed that he is already working on his next solo album and hopes to release it in Summer 2014.

The rapper, who released his latest album 'Yeezus' earlier this year, divulged the information during a new interview with US radio station Power 99. In the interview, West discussed some of the many musical projects he is involved in, including Watch The Throne and GOOD Music albums.

Talking to his hosts about the follow up album to 'Yeezus', West said: "I haven't named my next album, but I have started on it. I always write down philosophies all the time, so I'll just have some thoughts and every time I think of it I write, and I'm just collecting beats, I'm just constantly working. I'd like to put out more product, I'd like have another album out by next summer."

West also touched on the topics of a second instalment of Watch The Throne music and the long awaited GOOD Music album, 'Cruel Winter'. On the subject of reuniting with his mentor Jay Z, West said: "We're constantly working, I mean we haven't made any songs for it yet. We going to see what's going to happen"

Meanwhile, it seems timing is behind 'Cruel Winter's failure to arrive. "We think about it, I go back and forth on it. We just keep missing the winter, that's the only problem. We thinking 'bout dropping a Cruel Winter"

Earlier this month (November 19), the rapper criticised US president Barack Obama for calling him a "jackass".




Meanwhile, video footage of Kanye West giving an architecture lecture to students at Harvard University emerged online. West told those in attendance that he believed the world "can be saved through design", adding: "I believe that utopia is actually possible. But we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political."
