Rick Rubin confirms new Kanye West album is coming soon

Super producer and Def Jam founder Rick Rubin will announce that a new Kanye West album is on the way in an exclusive interview with Zane Lowe for Radio 1 tonight (16th June).

In the interview, Rubin discusses Kanye's latest album 'Yeezus' before unveiling new information about the rappers follow-up, which he claims will be out by the end of the summer.

“There were loads of great ideas and there were many many tracks and we listened to everything together,” Rubin says. “He originally came over and said ’I wanna come play you my new album’ and I thought we’d be listening to a finished album. Then we listened to about three hours of music, most of which didn’t have vocals, and at the end I was like ’wow, so what’s it gonna be?’ I’m thinking it’s a year away and he was like ’well, I’m putting it out in like 5-6 weeks.’ It was just a funny conversation because it was completely normal to him, it’s just the way he works … today, Kanye West is coming in and we’re starting looking at vocal ideas for things for the next album.”

The interview will be aired in segments throughout the week on Radio 1, with the first part broadcasting tonight from 7pm.
