Kanye West names new album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’

The rapper and producer reveals his next studio effort is due out on November 22

Kanye West has announced the release date for his new album.

The rapper and producer revealed that his next studio effort, which will be called ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, is due out on November 22.

“The official album title is and always was … ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’,” West wrote on Twitter. Earlier he named a release date declaring: “We gone kill it again on November 22nd! Even with the leaks…”

West had previously hinted the record might have been called ‘Good Ass Job’ or just ‘Dark Twisted Fantasy’.

Last week, West cancelled his weekly ‘Good Friday’ music giveaway after tracks from his forthcoming album leaked online.

Despite the cancellation, he still released a new song, ‘Christian Dior Denim Flow’, on Saturday (October 1) via KanyeWest.com/GOODFridays.

Meanwhile, West, his regular DJ A-Trak, Armand Van Helden and the likes of Vampire Weekend, Santigold and Pharrell Williams, all appear in Duck Sauce’s new video ‘Barbra Streisand’, which sees a host of artists paying tribute to New York and, apparently, the singer.
