Seemingly out of nowhere, Yeezy Season has arrived once more.

After being silent for the last few months, Kanye West has emerged from the shadows and will be hosting a live listening event for his upcoming studio album, Donda.

Apple Music and West have teamed up to host a sold-out listening event at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Those who weren’t able to snag a ticket can still experience the event by tuning into Apple Music’s live stream. The global live stream event will begin tonight at 5pm PT/8pm ET.

Before this, Kanye held another listening event in Vegas over the weekend. Donda was formally announced in a Beats by Dre commercial that premiered during Game 6 of the NBA Finals. A new song from the album titled “No Child Left Behind” was previewed in the tv spot as well.

According to Billboard, Ye is also reportedly going to be taking center stage at Rolling Loud Miami this weekend.

The road to Donda has been interesting, to say the least. Every rollout for Kanye’s albums has been different, from flying out various celebrities and members of media to Wyoming to now adorning a full face mask and not saying much about the album.

The Chicago rapper has been posting in riddles on Instagram, not captioning anything but giving us glimpses into his process.

Kanye West and Mike Dean are putting the finishing touches on 'DONDA' ahead of his listening event tomorrow night in Atlanta. How's it sounding?

Videos have also surfaced of Ye in the studio with others, like Mike Dean, and playing them the album. Regardless of what Donda sounds like, Yeezy has the world engaged again and his live event in Atlanta should definitely be memorable.
