The 12-track record was first announced by Kim Kardashian West in late August
Kanye West is releasing his new album ‘Jesus Is King’ this month.
With the long-awaited ‘Yandhi’ still nowhere to be seen, a new record has now been announced in its place. It’ll be West’s first since last year’s ‘ye’, and is expected to be reflective of his recent gospel-heavy Sunday Service sessions.
West’s wife Kim Kardashian West first announced ‘Jesus Is King’ with a pair of social media posts on August 29, revealing a release date of September 27, the album title and the contents of its 12-strong tracklist.
West has now seemingly confirmed ‘Jesus Is King’ by updating his official website. A screenshot of Kardashian’s post of the tracklist — which also features an open bible and a yellow notepad with biblical phrases scrawled across the page — is now the sole page that is available to view on West’s site.
A new Kanye song called ‘Brothers’ was teased back in May, which then appeared on the soundtrack to Tales. The song was co-produced by Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo, the creator of the show.
In terms of recent musical output, Kanye has appeared in a guest role on a slew of recent songs, including ‘Puppet’ by Tyler, the Creator, ‘Mixed Personalities’ by YNW Melly and ‘I Love It’ by Lil Pump. He also previewed a ‘Jesus Is King’ song, ‘Water’, at his Sunday Service performance at Coachella.
