Kanye West has confirmed that he will premiere ‘Jesus Is King’ in Los Angeles tomorrow (October 23) ahead of its arrival on Friday (October 25).
The follow-up to ‘Ye’ failed to arrive in September, despite the rapper sharing a tracklist and previewing the record at his ongoing Sunday Sessions.
However, West has now confirmed that he’ll premiere the album at a special listening and screening at the Forum in Los Angeles. Tickets will be available for free here from 10am PST on Wednesday morning.
It comes after he confirmed the release on Twitter – sharing a photo of a blue vinyl bearing the record’s name.

Kanye first revealed the mooted release at at the Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience event , which was hosted at the George Washington University in Washington earlier this month.
He reportedly told the audience that the album was delayed because he was “making it better for y’all.”
It also coincides with the release of West’s IMAX film, also titled Jesus Is King, which will bring his Sunday Service to cinemagoers.
He told GQ: “That was the day that I met Kanye. And he just could not have been nicer. It was super fun. And it was a great vibe doing that performance in their house. After that, he asked me if I want to come over to see his studio. So I said, ‘Cool’. So I went with him. And he started playing me some tracks. And as he was playing the tracks, I did not hesitate to say what I thought about the tracks.
“And I suggested on a particular track, ‘You know, I think if my saxophone was on there it would sound really good’. And he said, ‘Cool’. And he pulled out the microphone, and I started playing on it.”
The record was meant to be released on September 27 but did not arrive. West’s wife Kim Kardashian West then said it would be released on September 29, however that day passed without an album too.
