Los Angeles - Kanye West's new album will be released on 11 February.

The Only One hitmaker's highly-anticipated LP, Swish, is set for release in just over a month's time, he has revealed.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote simply: "Swish February 11 16 (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old rapper's wife Kim Kardashian West recently teased Kanye would be releasing new music every Friday via the microblogging site.

She tweeted: "Friiiiiiday!!!! New music!!!! #EveryFriday#Swish#RealFriends (sic)"

The message prompted speculation Kanye would release tracks from his upcoming album in the same way he did for his 2010 LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, with new material uploaded online once a week in a series titled "G.O.O.D. Fridays".

The news comes after Kanye asked to be left alone until he had finished his LP.

He previously wrote: "I'm finishing my album and my next offense to anyone... I'm asking everyone DON'T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I'M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM (sic)."

Meanwhile, Kanye recently defended his mention of LeBron James in his track Facts.

He said: "The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, LeBron is fam bottom line (sic)".
