According to cinematographer and video artist Arthur Jafa, the title of West's next album will be God's Country, and new music from the effort could arrive next week.
Jafa shared the news in conversation with French fashion figure Michèle Lamy, which has been archived below by West stan site TeamKanyeDaily. Lamy inquired about a current project of Jafa's, asking him if it was related to West's Sunday Service events.
"It's from his new record," Jafa said of his accompanying visuals. "It's called God's Country and this will be, like, the first single, I guess, off of it. I don't know if I'm supposed to not be announcing it or whatever. I may just be spilling the beans."
Jafa added, "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."
Last year, West released Jesus Is King and followed that up with choral album Jesus Is Born. As for God's Country, we'll see if it earns a spot on the pile next to Yandhi, Turbo Grafx 16, Cruel Winter and Good Ass Job.
Jafa's 2017 video Love Is the Message, The Message Is Death, was soundtracked by West's "Ultralight Beam," taken from 2016's The Life of Pablo.
