Didn't you see the SNL performance? Kanye is NOT FOR SALE.

It really doesn't seem like this album is coming out for a few more weeks. Kanye is in the studio with Rick Rubin trying to record more material/make some changes and they apparently couldn't get a choir sample cleared. The record label execs are "going crazy." I also haven't seen any track listing and the listening parties that have been going on haven't been consistent.

You can pre-order Yeezus on Amazon France:

Yeezus: Kanye West, Assassin: Amazon.fr: Musique

But your copy may have 4 untitled tracks.

Terrific interview with NY Times.

I love Kanye. So gloriously hubristic.

Apparently, according to the consensus at Kanye To The, the album was finished completely sometime yesterday afternoon, hours before a listening party where Kanye straight up said the album will be out in a week.

This, of course, contradicts other reports I've heard that certain retail chains already have the album. I have no idea what's going on /towelie

There are a LOT of people expecting this album to leak sometime between now and Thursday, but I'm not about to hold out hope for that. It's just good to know that everything seems to be on track for the 18th.

Def Jam just tweeted this:

Edit: I'm on my phone and hadn't noticed that image was also in the NYT article Cobbler posted.

But has that instinct led you astray? Like the Taylor Swift interruption at the MTV Video Music Awards, things like that.

It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.
Uh. May. Zine.

Kinda hope this doesn't leak, would be cool if everyone gets to hear it at the same time.

That was an entertaining interview. I like that they insist on calling him Mr. West as he carries on in the most un-gentlemanly manner possible.

I'm not the biggest hip hop fan, and I only like handfuls of songs off his albums, but he's the one hip hop/rap artist where I look forward to hearing something new and will buy the album.

Actually rather excited for this.

Sorry to spoil your fun, but this is standard New York Times practice. They keep it formal and always refer to article subjects as "Mr.", "Mrs.", "Ms." after printing their full name at the beginning.

I'm aware of that. I was just pointing out the irony in the situation.
