As we still await for Kanye West’s delayed-yet-highly-anticipated new album Jesus Is King to drop — should be today, folks! — it now appears that we can also expect an accompanying documentary to premiere in theaters.
Just heard Kanye’s new album Jesus Is King and saw the accompanying film. My favorite track is the last song and it features the Clipse. Both Push & No Malice. Kenny G is also on it. “New Body” has been cut from the album.

As Pitchfork reports it, Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film will hit IMAX theaters in roughly a month’s time. A few lucky fans and local press got the opportunity to preview both the film and album in Detroit on Friday, which boasts a surprise Clipse reunion as Andrew Barber of Fake Shore Drive detailed on his Twitter (seen above). Details are brief, but the synopsis given so far describes the film as a “making of”-style doc that will see ‘Ye and a team of musicians navigating the Roden Crater; the new installation, located at Arizona’s Painted Desert by artist James Turrell, also serves as the artwork used on the theatrical poster and/or album cover seen here. However this all turns out, let’s just hope it falls in line with what we expect from Yeezy: good music!
Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film is scheduled to arrive at IMAX theaters on Friday, October 25. The album Jesus Is King will (hopefully!) be dropping later today.
