The ongoing saga of Kanye West’s seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo, seems as if it’s still far from being over. Def Jam has announced that the first single from The Life of Pablo will be sent to radio for airplay now, and it’s none other than “Famous.” The song, which features an infamous lyric pertaining to Taylor Swift, is the first song from the album to receive officially sanctioned radio play, despite the fact the album has been on Tidal for a while now.
In related news, Pitchfork reports that multiple radio DJs have revealed forthcoming dates for an as-of-yet unannounced tour, tentatively titled The Saint Pablo Tour. JAM’N 107.5 in Portland said that Kanye will perform at the MODA Center on July 8 in Portland, and DJ Ryan Cameron of Atlanta station V103 has said that Kanye will also play Atlanta’s Phillips Arena August 5. His tweet read, “The Saint Pablo tour is coming August 5, to PHILLIPS arena so guess who has them now? This guy! @kanyewest tix before 8!”
Both of the tweets announcing the dates have since been deleted, so it would appear that the tour isn’t ready to be announced just yet. If Kanye is heading out on a tour later this year, it’ll be his first tour since the 2014 Yeezus tour.
