First it was called So Help Me God (long live, So Help Me God!), then it was called Swish, now Kanye West’s upcoming seventh LP is officially known as Waves. But, who knows! There’s still plenty of time before February 11 for another name-change! (But who will break it to Father John Misty?)
With the new title came an endearing update to that hand-written note that revealed the album’s tracklist over the weekend. The new note, which features tags from ASAP Rocky, The-Dream, and Swizz Beatz, includes a hitherto unannounced new song, “Ultra Light Beam”, bringing the album to a still-brisk 11 tracks. Note: Waves will be the first Kanye album with a title track.
Kanye, unsurprisingly, is really stoked on Waves.
Bring it on, #YeezySeason.
