Kanye West Plans To Switch It Up On Next Album
According to Kanye West his next album will be designed like nothing he’s ever done before. Taking inspiration from Yeezus, Kanye says that his next album will be less about the amount of music and more about the impact of the content.
“I think my next album is going to be eight songs,” said Yeezy Wednesday night during a chat with architect Jacques Herzog at the Moore Building in Miami. “It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn’t made Yeezus, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.”
Giving a bit more insight on his passion for design he stated, “My original creative background was fine art,” West said. “By the time I was 14, I was in national competitions for art, and I actually went to school for art. Sometimes I actually forget that. Except for when I tour and I look back at the stage and say, ‘Wait a second, I forgot this was the whole trick I pulled on everyone to make them think I was a rapper, a musician or celebrity when the entire time it’s all been a giant art project.”
