Kanye West Finally Announces SWISH Release Date

It's coming sooner than you think.

Published January 9, 2016

The time is almost here — Kanye West's highly anticipated next album SWISH finally has a confirmed release date. The hip hop heavyweight took to Instagram to share the news:

Seeing as it's been almost two years since 'Ye's released a full-length LP — 2013's Yeezus was his latest offering — the MC's fans have been itching for new music.

The trail for his seventh studio album — formerly called So Help Me God — started last year when fans thought it would be released then. After teasing songs from the new project like "All Day," "Only One," and "I Feel Like That," fans became impatient as plans for a full project were never detailed by Yeezy or his reps.

Now, with the release of "Real Friends" and a preview of "No More Parties in LA" featuring Kendrick Lamar, it's safe to say that 'Ye is back and the SWISH era is well under way.
