This month on the 18th Kanye West’s releases his sixth solo album.
Kanyewest.com has confirmed on “Yeezus” being the title name of Kanye West’s upcoming album
Lately Ye has been performing the songs “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead” on “Saturday Night Live” as well as having the “New Slaves” video projected onto dozens of buildings worldwide including various cities across the United States simultaneously.
This image below is rumored to be the cover art for the project:
HipHopDX reported, it’s still not entirely clear whether the cover art is an image of a clear case with red tape, or whether the project actually will be released in a clear case. The move calls to mind Yasiin Bey’s (then Mos Def’s) 2006 album True Magic, which was released in a clear plastic case without a booklet, cover art, lyrics, or credits.
Another similarity between the two releases is the lack of promotion. While Yeezus certainly has garnered attention due to the projections and the “SNL” performances, it currently has no single on the radio, and reportedly will not be available for preorder.
