There’s exciting news for Kanye West fans! New music from the rapper and producer is coming soon, according to his cinematographer Arthur Jafa.

Jafa recently had a conversation with fashion icon Michèle Lamy, which surfaced on Friday (May 22), and he shared Kanye West’s plans to release his forthcoming album and release new music next week, as XXL reports.

During the Instagram Live conversation, the 59-year-old shared some info about Kanye West’s new album.

“It’s called God’s Country... I don’t know if I’m ’posed to not be announcing it or whatever. I may just be spilling the beans.”

“But yeah, it’s from a new record that’s forthcoming,” Jafa continued. “I don’t know when the album is coming out but the single, I think, maybe sometime next week. Maybe. It’s not sure. It’s not definite.”
