Our new fave song
Prepare to cry
NO NO NO

Kanye West does his best work on Twitter in bursts. This weekend while he was in the studio watching the Bears/Packers game and y’know, making some new music, Yeezy was also live tweeting a few announcements that lit up the interweb.
The first in a string of tweets that got people excited was that “WATCH THE THRONE COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!” Sadly, there was no specific date mentioned, but that at least confirms he is committing to March as the month.
The next announcement was the biggest head-scratcher though: “MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER.” Another new album? Considering My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is only two months old and still racking up strong sales, and his collabo with Jay-Z, Watch The Throne, will be out in the spring, this seems almost too ambitious to believe. Nothing more has been said, but we have to think this will be some kind of “leftovers” effort. But considering this is coming from a perfectionist like Kanye, we can only assume it will be something along the lines of Radiohead’s Amnesiac. (See Kid A.)
Not quite as exciting but still pretty cool is the announcement that we can expect the “ALL THE LIGHTS VIDEO IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!” What this means is that we likely won’t see that final cut of “Monster” now, I guess.
Finally, Kanye gave us a hint as to what we can expect from the music he is currently cooking up. “THIS IS HIGH END RAP MUSIC,” he tweeted. Adding that “I just threw some bassoon on this muthafucka,” which is not only hilarious, but also the kind of left-field comment that always keeps us coming back to that Twitter of his.Tweet
