Kanye West Confirms Release Date Of New Album “Yandhi”
Good Ass Job with Chance The Rapper isn’t the only album Kanye West has on the way. On Monday (Sept. 17), Yeezy hopped on Twitter to announce his next album, Yandhi, will be releasing on Sept. 29.
The cover for the upcoming project appears to draw inspiration from Yeezus and features a blank MiniDisc with a piece of purple tape, similar to how Yeezus included a blank Compact Disc with red tape. The MiniDisc image has been floating around the internet since as early as 2009. Kanye also seems to be getting inspiration from legendary Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi for the album’s title.
Kanye had previously teased the upcoming album earlier in the day, sharing the same photo on his Instagram page with no caption. The new album will serve as a follow-up to the rapper’s seven-track record released in June, Ye.
Yeezy and the Saturday Night Live Twitter account also revealed the Chicago rapper will be appearing on the Sept. 29 episode of SNL, the same day Yandhi is scheduled to release. Kanye previously released The Life of Pablo following an appearance as the musical guest on a 2016 episode of the NBC series.
Along with announcing his Yandhi album, Kanye also recently announced a new album with Chance The Rapper is on the way. Appearing at Chano’s Open Mike event, ‘Ye revealed the two are working on Good Ass Job, but wouldn’t say when fans could expect to hear the project.
