Kanye West has confirmed his new album Jesus Is King will finally be released this week.
The “Jesus Walks” rapper took to Twitter on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, to share a graphic of the vinyl copy of the album and to let fans know when they can get their hands on a copy of the record.
He simply wrote: “JESUS IS KING” OCT 25th (sic)”
He borrows from “religious texts” for the lyrics on his long-awaited LP.
The 42-year-old rapper has been hosting a “Sunday Service,” which features a gospel choir and other musical performances, since January, and his ninth studio album continues to document his Christian beliefs and also sees him address the state of the world and society’s obsessions with social media.
The track “Water” sees West — who has children North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 20 months, and Psalm, 4 months, with reality star Kim Kardashian West — claim that humans are made up of 90 percent water, 30 percent less than scientists believe.
While on “Closed On Sunday,” he asks people to “put the ‘gram away,” despite his wife using the app as a form of income.
On “LA Monster,” the hip-hop superstar hits out at Los Angeles — where he lives a life of luxury with his family — for “lettin’ Satan run they streets (sic)”
He raps: “It’s the ugliest nightmare born from the prettiest dreams; millions of people trying to get on the scene; and everyone selling their souls, everyone saying they woke, but they sleepwalking, dead, eyes closed.”
