Kanye West

Kanye West is working on a new album, but up until now, we’ve only heard the vaguest of reports about it, like the interview where Kanye said that it would be Born In The U.S.A. to Yeezus’s Nebraska. The album is supposed to come out this summer — and it’s our most anticipated album of the year, so we hope that happens — but rap albums with indistinct release plans rarely come out when they’re supposed to. So here’s a ray of good news: Kanye is definitely finishing up the album, and he’s adjusting his plans to make sure he gets it done.

Kanye was set to take his Yeezus tour to Australia, but as the Sydney Morning Herald reports, he’s postponed those dates until September. And in a statement, Live Nation Australia blames the change of plans on “unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release.” So we know he’s not just picking out wedding flower arrangements with Kim or whatever.

And because this is April 1 and the internet always fucking sucks today, Live Nation Australia has felt the need to explain to the world, via Twitter, that “this is definitely not an April Fools joke.” Well, that’s a relief.

  1. Initial and possibly misspelled reports also indicate that Kanye is also Finnishing his new album. Inspired by traditional music of his favorite Scandinavian country, Kanye’s new work will likely be filled with rekilaulu, the popular 17th century sleigh singing style, as well as a more pronounced role for the clarinet and fiddle, instruments seldom heard on Yeezus. No word yet on if he will incorporate traditional Sami stylings in the album, but rumors of a Children of Bodom collaboration have been making the rounds.

    • In addition, as suggested by his anger management classes, Kanye will remove all vulgar lyrics and profanities from his new album. Early rumors suggest this decision will not only strengthen the parallel to The Boss’ “Born In The USA” but will also make investor Samsung happy. My underground sources in the Eastern world are pointing toward a release date in conjunction with new glasses that when worn will project Ye’s new album directly into your eyes via a series of videos meant to trigger synesthesia. So rather than hearing the album through headphones, you will be able to hear it through your eyeballs.

      If true, that would definitely explain why he needed to cancel the Australian tour. Sounds like a lot of work.

  2. Did anybody see that Frank Ocean PMA April Fool’s joke? It actually crushed me. This is great news though.
