LOS ANGELES: Rapper Kanye West’s new album has been leaked.
A recording of the highly anticipated album was reportedly made from outside a listening party for the record, titled “Swish”, with a user known as “dxnxixlrxsxnxbxrx” posting the 59-minute audio clip on link-sharing website Reddit, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
However, the recording – which was shared on Reddit’s “Hip Hop Heads” page before being deleted – was of such bad quality, many users questioned whether it was even worth listening to.
“It’s low quality as hell, but I’m hearing some new (Kanye) vocals so I’m willing to bet this is real,” wrote a fan on the page.
“I’m pretty thirsty for this album but if it’s so low quality that it’s not even a little enjoyable I won’t even bother,” said another fan.
The 38-year-old rapper has worked with Sir Paul McCartney on the record — which is his first album since 2013’s “Yeezus” — and has already released tracks “Only one” and “All day” from the album, originally titled “So Help Me God”.
Although the “Gold digger” hitmaker has yet to announce an official release date for “Swish”, he previously teased fans can expect a record full of “joy”.
“There’s joy in it. It’s not full of protest. ‘Yeezus’ was a protest to music, like, ‘I’m gonna take my ball and go home. If I can’t do what I wanna do, y’all can’t have music,” he said.
“And now it’s like I can do 10 percent of what I want to do so let’s make music again.”
