Swish February 11 16 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 9, 2016 Yes, West’s highly anticipated seventh LP will be out on February 11, 2016, his first since 2013’s platinum-selling Yeezus. It’s been a busy week for West, who dropped a new song earlier today, the Ty Dolla $ign-featured “Real Friends,” and announced via his wife, Kim Kardashian, that new music would be dropping every Friday. The Governors Ball lineup was also revealed today, and none other than Kanye himself was the headliner–his design agency, DONDA, also designed the flyer for the annual NYC festival, which takes place during the first week of June. Get ready. Yeezy season is no longer approaching. It has arrived.
