Swish! Kanye West Finally Announces Release Date for New Album
Following a whole year that included six new songs and an album title change, Kanye West has finally announced a release date for the long-awaited Swish.
After relaunching his G.O.O.D. Friday series (wherein West releases a new track every Friday ahead of his upcoming album) and dropping “Real Friends,” West has confirmed the arrival of Swish via Twitter. The follow-up to 2013’s Yeezus is due out Feb. 11. Thanks to Yeezy, this is already shaping up to be a very “nice weekend.”

The album announcement arrives shortly after the release of two new tracks from West: yesterday’s (Jan. 8) “Real Friends” and “Facts,” which landed on New Year’s Eve. West also previewed a clip of his Kendrick Lamar collaboration “No More Parties in L.A.,” which will presumably arrive in full this coming Friday, Jan. 15.
West was also recently revealed as one of the headliners for this year’s Governors Ball in New York City. He joins a roster that includes the Strokes, the Killers, Beck, Death Cab for Cutie, M83, Haim, Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Eagles of Death Metal and more. See the complete lineup right here.
