Kanye West has finally announced the release date for his next album, SWISH.
It’s been almost two years since 2013’s Yeezus, the genre-bending LP featuring songs such as “Black Skinhead,” “I Am a God,” “New Slaves” and more.
Last year, many Kanye fans wondered if his seventh studio album (formerly named So Help Me God) would come out then. He teased singles from his mystery album like “Only One,” “FourFiveSeconds,” “Wolves," “All Day,” and "I Feel Like That." Collaborators were a mixed bag of artists across all genres, including Paul McCartney, Ty Dolla $ign, Post Malone, Sia, Vic Mensa, Allan Kingdom and possibly even Madonna. Rick Rubin and Mike Dean have promised to work on his album again.
With the arrival of “Real Friends” and a snippet of “No More Parties in LA” featuring Kendrick Lamar, SWISH marks the return of Yeezy season.
