Hours prior, Kanye announced his next solo album would be called So Help Me God.

Appearing on the “Ellen” show in January, Kanye revealed he did not have a title nailed down to the upcoming release.

“We’re still trying to find it, trying to find the vibe,” he says. “You know, this transition from what I felt when I did Yeezus, to what I feel now. We’re just creating, so we haven’t found it yet.” (“The Ellen Show”)

Recent reports claimed there was no truth to Paul McCartney album rumors.

UPDATE: Contrary to reports, Paul McCartney did not co-produce all of Kanye West’s new album, reps for McCartney and West tell Rolling Stone. (Rolling Stone)
