Kanye West Announces New Album With Ty Dolla $ign

We all knew it was coming eventually.

Kanye West is releasing a joint album with Ty Dolla $ign, debuting his first creative project since last year’s controversies at a “multi-stadium listening event” on Nov. 3.

While West has stayed off social media over the last several months, Ty announced the upcoming event on his Instagram.

It was speculated that the joint album would drop in October, but that was delayed because the duo was looking for a distributor to release the project on. Ye reportedly has had difficulty finding a label that would work with him.

The album will mark the first release by Ye since a string of antisemitic comments he made late last year, which led to brands like Adidas and labels like Def Jam distancing themselves from the artist.

“The project has record industry executives weighing the risks and rewards of releasing what some who’ve heard the music say is West’s best music in at least five years, since 2018’s Ye, but at an especially fraught time as the conflict between Israel and Hamas intensifies following the surprise attack on the Supernova Sukkot Gathering music festival on Oct. 7,” Billboard reported. “Some label leaders have passed on the opportunity to distribute the project given the antisemitic comments West began making almost exactly a year prior, beginning Oct. 8, 2022 — even though the music itself isn’t controversial lyrically, sources say.”
