Hours after hitting Camp Flog Gnaw with Kid Cudi to perform tracks off their collab album Kids See Ghosts, Kanye West took to Twitter to let his fans know that his upcoming ninth studio album is going to come out even later than expected. "I’ll announce the release date once it’s done. Thank you for understanding," Kanye wrote.
It felt so good being on the stage last night with my brother Cudi. After performing again, I realize the new album I’ve been working on isn’t ready yet. I’ll announce the release date once it’s done. Thank you for understanding.
Yandhi was previously supposed to be released on Sept. 29 but was then postponed to Nov. 23.

Last month, Kanye spoke to TMZ about Yandhi's delay, saying: "I didn't finish it. A person from my management staff, our management staff, had suggested because the album is so good, it's my...I started incorporating sounds that you never heard before and pushing it, and having like, concepts that people don't, you know, talk about." He continued: "So we're going to Africa in two weeks to record [...] I felt this energy when I was in Chicago, I felt the roots. But we have to go to what is known as Africa. I need to go, I need to find out what it’s really called. Just grab the soil and be and cook food, five meals a day so the metabolism stays up, have my kids in the studio, have the mic out in the open so you can hear nature while we’re recording.”
Stay tuned as more information about Yandhi (or whatever the project will end up being called) rolls in.
