Word has it that Kanye West’s new album is probably going to drop in just a couple of hours. Well, maybe. It’s been a very ~ Kanye ~ build-up to the release of this record, with one anticipated release date having already been and gone and the tracklist changing a few times too.
The title, though, has stayed consistent, this pending release has been called Jesus Is King since we first heard about it via a tweet from Kim Kardashian-West.

The 12 tracks listed, at the time, were:
Wake The Dead
Through The Valley
Friday, 27th September rolled around though, and aside from a launch party in Detroit, we did not receive Jesus Is King.
The following day, KKW told us to have faith and shared the new, now 10 song-long, tracklist with us.

We were told it was a short delay but we’d have the album by the following Sunday. We did not.
At a Sunday Service in Washington, Kanye told the crowd his album was pushed back because “I’m making it better for y’all”. That’s also when we received the new release date: Friday, 25th October.
Now, Kanye is a touch unreliable when it comes to release dates or details, but this feels like a good omen.
Kanye himself has tweeted, “JESUS IS KING” along with “Midnight” and a brand new tracklist.
This time, the tracklist is 12 songs long and in an actual graphic, so hopefully it’s legit.
“JESUS IS KING”
