29 September 2019

It appears that with each passing day, another new news story floats around social media regarding Kanye West’s new and highly anticipated project but this new one is massive and game-changing. 

It has been confirmed by multiple credible sources that Kanye West will release the Jesus is King IMAX film on Friday the 25th of October which will be screened in cinemas worldwide.

IMAX said in a statement, ““Filmed in the summer of 2019, Jesus Is King brings Kanye West’s famed Sunday Service to life in the Roden Crater, visionary artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert. This one-of-a-kind experience features songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with music from his new album Jesus Is King — all presented in the immersive sound and stunning clarity of IMAX”.

Kanye allegedly showcased clips from the film at his recent listening parties for the eponymous album which took place in several cities across America this weekend.

Jesus is King was due to be released on Friday but fans were left disappointed when they did not receive the new project from Kanye as promised.

According to Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian, Jesus is King will be released tonight. Kim confirmed this via Twitter along with a picture which seemingly confirmed the album’s tracklist.

Kanye also allegedly announced that following the release of this album, he will no longer record secular music and will instead only release and record gospel tracks.
