Everyone's talking about it. Kanye's follow-up album to Yeezus.

When is it going to be released? Who's going to be featured on it? Is it going to be old-school Kanye? Yeezus Kanye?

A few weeks ago in Paris, Theophilus London reported on his Instagram that the album was finished and that Kanye played the entire thing three times to 20 people in a dark room.

Note where he says KANYE PLAYED HIS NEW ALBUM 3 TIMES IN A DARK ROOM OF 20 PEOPLE.

Well, just a few days after posting the photos, he retracted his statement via Twitter:

Okay... aren't YOU the one that said he played the new album? 

Well, whatever. We are further information about the new album from a more CREDIBLE source. Malik Yousef, who is signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music label, opened up to Rolling Stone stating that there are "20 finished songs" for the album, but it's still not done yet.

Malik went on further to say that “This album is different. It’s like a pair of Timberlands; like how Timberlands are not quite leather and not quite suede. It’s not the smooth, slick Chicago music sound we have right now and it’s not the ruggedness of just ‘hip-hop hip-hop hip-hop.”

We really don't know what to expect. All we really know is we want to hear it ASAP.
