Kanye West plans two albums by summer
Kanye West wants to release two albums before the end of the summer.
The 'Runaway' hitmaker confirmed his joint album with Jay-Z, 'Watch The Throne' will be released in March, while he also plans to have the follow up to his 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' record - which came out in November - ready shortly after.
After confirming he was in the studio last night (23.01.11), Kanye tweeted: "I'll be back this SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!! WATCH THE THRONE COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!! MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER (sic)."
Describing the sound his forthcoming tracks will have, Kanye, 33, added: "THIS IS HIGH END RAP MUSIC. I just threw some bassoon on this muthaf***a (sic)."
One track, 'H.A.M', from 'Watch The Throne' has already been previewed online, and Jay has previously talked about how "enjoyable" it is seeing Kanye - who got his initial break as a producer when his track 'Izzo (H.O.V.A.)' became the first top ten single of Jay's career in the US - work.
He said: "Kanye, really he's like a brother to me, I've seen him from the beginning to where he is now.
"To see him as a producer and to see how he's growing as a producer and as an artist, for me, on another level, it's enjoyable.
"I'm watching the guy that I pretty much mentored become his own guy, with his own opinion. It's fantastic."Posted on 24 Jan 2011 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
