More about: Kanye West
Kanye West has given an update to fans on the status of his new album Swish, informing a sea of sad faces could be waiting another year until the album is released.
In the past, the future President of the United States suggested that the follow up to 2013’s Yeezus would be arriving this year. Even though ‘All Day’ was released in march, it looks as if the album won’t be arriving any time soon.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, West described Swish as a “two year painting” and explained that he might still be working on the album in another12 months. "I’ve been doing that [making a new record] too," he said. "That’s like a sonic landscape, a two-year painting."
He recently debuted new track ‘Fade’ at his New York Yeezy Fashion Week event. "That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete," West said. "But I want to let people get a glimpse at the painting."
West faced criticism at The New York Fashion Week show after announcing a last-minute show that clashed with many other designers’s events. West told Vanity Fair: "A lot of times I feel like Will Ferrell in the movie Elf. You know this big guy that wants to [join in] and his hands are a little bit too big… I could just say please forgive me if I ever step on any toes, because there’s nothing that I would ever want to do or say that would take away from any designer, that would take away from anyone’s work or what they’re working so hard on."
Kanye also confirmed that he wasn’t just incredibly high at the VMA’s and was “definitely” still running for President in 2020, though he's against the idea of a traditional election where candidates face off against each other.
“When I run for president, I’d prefer not to run against someone," he said. "I would be like ‘I want to work with you.’ As soon as I heard [Republican candidate] Ben Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy. And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together."
