Kanye West shows off new album at exclusive listening party in Paris

Posted on

Rejoice: Kanye West may soon unleash his next album. According to rapper Theophilus London, ‘Ye unleashed his Yeezus follow-up last night three times for a small group of people in Paris.

On Thursday morning, London posted a picture to Instagram of him and Kanye, accompanied by the caption “Kanye playing his new album three times in a dark room of 20 people last night.” (The rapper also recalled “moshing drunk with mad babes” at the listening party, which took place at Paris Fashion Week.) London then took to Twitter to say that he’s featured on the record’s first single.

Back in July, Kanye told GQ his seventh studio album would “most likely” come out in September, though an October or November release could also be possible. The rapper (and designer and zipliner and religious prophet) hasn’t provided many details since, but if Yeezus‘ speedy 2013 release taught us anything, it’s that Kanye knows how to contain his projects and then push them out at a moment’s notice.
