Kanye West says he is coming to Africa to record some tracks off his ‘Yandhi’ album.
In an interview with TMZ, West said he wants to feel the energy and hear nature while recording.
‘Yandhi’, which is his third album in 2018, was supposed to be released on September 29.
“I didn’t finish it because someone from my management staff had suggested because the album is so good, I have started incorporating sounds that you have never heard before and pushing and having concepts that people don’t talk about,” he said.
“Concepts like body shaming and women being looked down upon for how many people they slept with. It’s a full YE album.”
West, who recently announced a name change to Ye, said his previous albums were superhero rehabilitation.
“Now the alien Ye is back in mode, off of medication, exercising and breathing as much fresh air as possible, thinking, doing, being himself and when I say being myself it doesn’t mean I’m being Donald Trump, it simply means I’m being me because I’m punk and I can wear whatever I want because I’m a god,” he continued.
“This is the kind of energy I’m putting into the album so I’m going to Africa in two weeks to record so that I can get the energy, you know I felt this energy when I was in Chicago, I felt the roots.
“We have to go what is known as Africa, I just need to go and find out what it’s really called and just grab the soil and cook food, five meals a day and have my kids in the studio and have the mic in the open so that you can hear nature while we are recording.”
He said the new release date for the album is November 23, also known as Black Friday.
