Kanye West Says His Next Album Coming This Summer

While tweeting his support for Chicago during the Bears vs. Packers game yesterday, Kanye West was also very forthcoming with info about his upcoming releases. “WATCH THE THRONE COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!” he wrote on Twitter about his upcoming joint album with Jay-Z, which spawned the current single “H.A.M.” But it was the 2011 Coachella headliner‘s next tweet that was truly eyebrow-raising. “MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER,” ‘Ye informed his Twitter followers. If true, that would mean we’d be seeing three LPs from West in a roughly seven-month period (including the chart-topping My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which dropped in November, and the Jay-Z collaboration Watch The Throne).

Next up caps-friendly Kanye tweeted, “ALL THE LIGHTS VIDEO IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!” Uh, what about finishing the extremely creepy “Monster” first? Or has an “official” clip now been abandoned?

Do you think we’ll actually see a brand new album from Kanye West so soon after the release of his last one?
