It confirmed that we will be getting a new Kanye West album soon, plus a new single. On the 29th of June 2020, Kanye West took to twitter to share that he has an upcoming album titled, “God’s Country”, plus he will be releasing a new leading single titled “Wash Us In The Blood” soon.
“KANYE WEST ARTHUR JAFA PROJECT 02 WASH US IN THE BLOOD FROM THE FORTHCOMING ALBUM GOD’S COUNTRY TODAY STILL #WESTDAYEVER,” ‘Ye wrote in a tweet.
Although this is not the first we hear about this album, If you have been following and can still remember that back in May, a conversation between Jafa and fashion icon Michèle Lamy surfaced on the internet, in which the cinematographer divulged a bit of information regarding the Chicago native’s album.
“It’s from his new record,” Jafa said when asked about the video he is working on with Kanye. “It’s called God’s Country and this will be, like, the first single, I guess, off of it. I don’t know if I’m ’posed to not be announcing it or whatever. I may just be spilling the beans. But yeah, it’s from a new record that’s forthcoming. I don’t know when the album is coming out but the single, I think, maybe sometime next week. Maybe. It’s not sure. It’s not definite.”
This isn’t the first collaborative effort between ‘Ye and Jafa. The cinematographer’s 2016 visual, Love Is the Message, The Message Is Death, features reflective moments of the Black experience played over Kanye’s “Ultralight Beam” from his The Life of Pablo album. Although we have got enough information about this upcoming album from Kanye, but more info is to be revealed soon.
