Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has stepped forward to provide fans with an update on his long-awaited SWISH solo album.

Although brief with details, Yeezy promised fans could expect a “sonic-painting” when the album comes out.

“I don’t want to overly describe it or overly try to hype it up. I’ve been working slow. I had a while to work on it and I separated a couple of tracks – and gave them to other people like ‘Four Five Seconds’ to Rihanna and the joint on the Weeknd album, ‘Tell Your Friends.’ I [have] still kept working trying to find [what will appear] on my album. I’m just going into the lab every night. It’s sounding good, it’s like a sonic painting and it gets better and better every week.” (Real 92.3)

Recently, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Travi$ Scott said the delayed solo effort would be worth the wait.

“And man, that Kanye album? OK. Let me hang up before it gets crazy! [laughs] That Ye album is nothing to sleep on and that Ye album is coming very soon. It’s lit. G.O.O.D. Music.” (Beats 1)

A few weeks ago, new Yeezy music premiered through Kanye’s Soundcloud page.

The first is a reworking of the ​808s & Heartbreak ​song “Say You Will” featuring Caroline Shaw, a composer who happens to be the youngest person to win a Pulitzer Prize for music, while the second is Kanye’s version of the Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends,” which Kanye produced for ​Beauty Behind the Madness​. Though it’s not clear whether or not these songs will be on ​SWISH​, they do at least give Yeezy fans hope that ​SWISH ​might actually happen one day. (Cosmopolitan)

Kanye recently talked about piecing together his new “Fade” song and long-awaited studio album, SWISH.

“We had a couple options and I just thought it sounded good against the people. For the 40 theaters across the globe, for the kids that all went to see it in theaters, I thought they’d be happy to hear some new music. I’ve been doing that [making a new album] too. That’s like a sonic landscape, a two-year painting. That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete. But it was to let people get a glimpse at the painting,” Kanye explained. “It’s ‘currently’ called Swish. I’m forgetting even what the last name of it was now.” (Vanity Fair)
