In an interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, Rick Rubin said that he is currently working on Kanye West's new album. During the interview, Rubin talked about the process of working on Kanye's last album, Yeezus, last year. "Today, Kanye West is coming in and we’re starting looking at vocal ideas for things for the next album," he said. There has been a lot of speculation regarding Kanye's album plans for this year, with Kanye himself suggesting that he will be putting out an album this summer. Meanwhile, Q-Tip has suggested that he is also working on the album. Rubin's full interview with Lowe will be broadcast in four parts starting Monday at 7PM.
