Kanye West’s SWISH May Take Another Year

Bad news for Kanye fans: SWISH might not be released for another year. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Kanye spoke at length about his fashion line, and then hinted that the forthcoming record is still in the works and might not drop in 2015. Kanye revealed this information in a roundabout way when asked about the song that soundtracked his runway show:

In terms of the soundtrack, was there a reason you chose that particular song, “Fade”?

We had a couple options and I just thought it sounded good against the people. For the 40 theaters across the globe, for the kids that all went to see it in theaters, I thought they’d be happy to hear some new music. I’ve been doing that [making a new album] too. That’s like a sonic landscape, a two-year painting. That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete. But it was to let people get a glimpse at the painting.

I know we’re here to talk about the fashion, but people are just a little bit interested in the album. It could be another year?

I’m not sure. I’m not worried about the years. I’m worried about the life and the body of work that I can put out while I’m breathing.
