Kanye West’s Album ‘SWISH’ Is Coming ‘Very Soon’

It sounds like if you want to know about album releases, just talk to Travis Scott. Scott recently confirmed that Rihanna’s album, Anti, is coming out very soon, and now he’s talking about Kanye West’s delayed album, SWISH.

One of the first times we heard about West’s SWISH, was back in July of 2014. In an interview with GQ magazine, West said the album would be coming in the fall. At the time, when he was asked about the progress on the album, he compared it to Beyoncé’s latest release, and how it took her a long time to craft her last album.

Nearly a year and a half after that interview, and we finally have seemingly concrete news on West’s upcoming album, SWISH. Although Travis Scott didn’t drop an exact date on the album, he said West will be dropping it “very soon.” In an interview with Beats 1, Scott said the following about the album.

“That Ye album is nothing to sleep on. That Ye album is coming very soon. It’s lit.”

This echos what Scott said earlier about West’s SWISH. Back in June, he talked up the rapper’s genius in an interview.

“His album is amazing. He’s on his producing s–t. He’s on his God-level rapping s–t. It’s that Kanye everybody wants. It’s some ultimate s–t.”

And, what does everyone want exactly? Most of Kanye’s super fans loved the experimental sound of Yeezus but some listeners, didn’t really “get” the manic way and overly hyper sound of the record. It wasn’t a pop rap album like My Beautiful Dark Fantasy, West’s most well-received album. Instead, it seemed to take a note from his album, 808s & Heartbreak, and push it out of this world, musically speaking.

Do fans want more of the Yeezus sound? Odds are they’ll get a similar sound if his single, “All Day,” is evidence of where the album is going. We’ve also heard a more sensitive West with new tracks like “Only One,” “FourFiveSeconds,” and “Wolves.”
