Yeezy Season is officially upon us as on Thursday (September 5th) Kanye West confirmed through his website that his ninth solo studio album, Jesus Is King, will arrive September 27th. The first hint was when his wife dropped what seemed to be the project’s track list, consisting of 12 selections.

In recent months, West has widened his musical palette, leaning more toward gospel influence with his weekly Sunday Service programs. The series, which began in January, includes West performing classic cuts with a choir. Ye even took his army of gospel virtuosos to Coachella to play this past Easter. There, he previewed several new songs to appear on the new project, including “Water” and “Garden.”
Jesus Is King will serve as the follow-up to West’s 2018 release, Ye. Initially, the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho was aiming to release Yandhi last September (that would’ve contained serious Yeezus vibes) but opted to shift the focus to this Sunday Service series. It is unknown whether the “Good Life” lyricist will unleash any singles prior to the album’s drop or just open the flood gates with the full length due out later this month.
