Well that didn’t take long. Just moments after we reported the cryptic tweets sent from Kanye West’s Twitter account, Chris Atlas at Def Jam confirmed that the new Kanye West album has been give a June 18th release date.
It looks like all of the waiting is nearly over. After teaming up with his G.O.O.D. Music crew last year to drop his ‘Cruel Summer’ compilation album, Kanye West is officially dropping a new album this coming summer.
Elliot Wilson took to Twitter just a few moments ago to confirm that the news about Kanye West’s album release date was in fact true. ” Chris Atlas at Def Jam confirmed. Kanye West. New album. 6.18.13.— Elliott Wilson (@ElliottWilson) May 2, 2013.”
Paul Rosenberg recently revealed that the Def Jam listening session had been held for Yeezy’s album, and that the project was “dark,” but still “really good.”
” I just heard that Def Jam had a listening last week. Everyone at the label listened to the album and loved it. I heard it’s dark, but really good,” Rosenberg stated.
Kanye is set to perform on the finale of Saturday Night Live this month, and now we definitely know we’re in for a treat.
*UPDATE – Elliot Wilson has just updated his Twitter account, apologizing for posting the wrong information about Kanye West’s album release date. “Once again: Kanye West album release date is NOT confirmed. Don’t know for sure what his tweet means. Apologies for false info.”
