Yeezy recently pushed back his Australian tour dates to finish his new album and now reports are coming in that ‘Ye may be releasing a three-hour long spoken word album. The multi-hour recording will reportedly be available on vinyl and will feature his views on the environment to his life and relationship with future-wife Kim Kardashian and the couple’s daughter, North. According to a source West, “…loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence. He has very strong views from music and art to politics and the environment. He’s forever recording his opinions on tape.”
The source continued, “He says he’s doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum. Kanye likes to push the boundaries and thinks this is very groundbreaking. He’s hoping it’ll win him a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album. What’s more, he planning on making 24 hours of his speech recording available to download so fans can listen to his views round the clock.”
No surprise that Kanye is doing something outside the box and it’s even less of a surprise that he would take it to this extreme. There is no word yet on whether this will be his next release or if he will be coming out with a more traditional album first. Stay tuned for more.
