Image Credit: Ben Hider/Getty ImagesKanye West has big plans for 2011. This weekend, he took to Twitter to announce a timeframe for three upcoming projects.

“I’ll be back this SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!” West promised on Sunday, shortly before clarifying this Terminator-esque declaration. Watch the Throne, his collaborative album with Jay-Z, is apparently “COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!” Before that happens, his music video for “All of the Lights” will arrive “IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!” Best of all, West touted “MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER.”

This is the first anyone has heard of a new solo album from West. As if Watch the Throne weren’t enough for fans to anticipate, now we have a whole other LP to look forward to.

Who knows what the follow-up to last fall’s masterful My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy might sound like? One hint: “I just threw some bassoon on this muthaf—a,” West added on Twitter a short while later, though it’s unclear which piece of music he was referring to. Here’s hoping his next album involves some sick woodwinds.

Are you looking forward to hearing Watch the Throne in March? Happy that we might get an entire new Kanye West album as soon as this summer? Sound off in the comments.
