Kanye West Announces New Album ‘Donda’ (Again)

    Last week, Kanye West tweeted out and then deleted the details of his upcoming album, including its title, tracklist, and release date. He announced that it would arrive this Friday, July 24, and would feature 20 songs, including the recently released ‘Wash Us in the Blood’ featuring Travis Scott and ‘Donda’, a tribute to his late mother. Now, the rapper and US presidential candidate has once again taken to social media to announce his new album Donda, this time with a different tracklist. Check out the tweet below.

    Containing 12 tracks, the new tracklist still includes the aforementioned tracks, as well as one track called ‘God’s Country’ and another called ‘In God’s Country’. It also includes ‘New Body’, a track originally set to appear on Jesus Is King featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. Other tracks appear to have been either cut off or retitled, and the order has been altered, with ‘Lord I Need You’ serving as the closer. Both the title and release date seem to have remained the same.

    DONDA will be the follow-up to Kanye’s 2019 studio album Jesus Is King. Last Christmas, Kanye put out its companion LP, Jesus Is Born, a collection of recordings made by his Sunday Service Choir.
