Kanye West has revealed that his new album will be titled ‘So Help Me God’.
During a recent appearance on US radio show The Breakfast Club, the rapper and producer claimed the record was 80 per cent complete. “[It’s gonna be] bars, songs, cookout music that just feels good,” he said. “My last album [2013’s ‘Yeezus’] was a protest to music, I was like ‘I’m gonna take my ball and go home’… This album is embracing the music, joy. Being of service to the people. I just hope people like it and enjoy it.”
Tracks expected to feature on ‘So Help Me God’ include ‘Wolves’, featuring Sia and Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, and the Paul McCartney collaboration ‘Only One’.
Also during The Breakfast Club interview, West revealed that ‘Wolves’ originates from a previously planned project with Drake. “The song [‘Wolves’] came from a conversation me and Drake had where we were supposed to do an album together – it was supposed to be called Wolves… we said we was gonna do it, he was sending beats back and forth,” West said.
