Kanye West: Swish gets better every week

2015-11-09 16:00

Los Angeles - Kanye West's new album "gets better every week".

The 38-year-old musician has been working on his seventh studio record - tentatively titled Swish - for over two years but still doesn't feel like it's ready to be released because it keeps improving.

He said: "I don't wanna overly describe it or overly try to hype it up.

"It's sounding good. It's like a sonic painting, and it gets better and better every week."

However, the All Day rapper acknowledged it has taken him a long time to create the collection, especially as he has given some of the tracks away.

Speaking on Real 92.3 radio show, he explained: "The work is slow. I've had a while to work on it. I separated with a couple of the tracks that were on my album that I gave to other people like FourFiveSeconds to Rihanna or the joint on The Weeknd's album, Tell Your Friends, and I still kept working and trying to find the language that I wanted to say on my album. Just going in the lab every night."

He previously revealed Swish is based on "embracing joy", which is in contrast to Yeezus which was a "protest" against the fashion industry.

He said: "My last album was a protest of music. This album's just embracing the music, embracing joy, and just being of service to the people."
