Kanye West Reveals His “Jesus Is King” Album Cover At New York Event
And the weekend passed with no sign of Kanye releasing his West’s ninth studio album, Jesus Is King. The album was said to be released on Friday but when it didn’t, Kim Kardashian twitted that it would be pushed back to Sunday for the final mixing tweaks. Still, while the album (unsurprisingly) didn’t drop on Sunday either, Kanye spent the weekend reviewing the project in different states.

Ye began off the weekend with an event in Detroit, titled Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience. This is the title of the IMAX film that will be coming on October 25th in IMAX Theaters, which records his Sunday Service choir performing at James Turrell’s Roden Carter art installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert. Kanye offered a peak of this experience in Chicago on Saturday, where he also joined Chance the Rapper on stage at The Big Day tour opener.
Just heard Kanye’s new album Jesus Is King and saw the accompanying film. My favorite track is the last song and it features the Clipse. Both Push & No Malice. Kenny G is also on it. “New Body” has been cut from the album.

Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience was brought to New York on Sunday night, right after hosting Sunday Service in Queens. Those who attended Manhattan’s United Palace didn’t only get a watch of the film, but also the Jesus Is King album. Videos of an enraptured crowd hearing the album’s assisted track, “Use This Gospel”, which is now circling around the Twitterverse. The song also features our one only saxophone section Kenny G. Apart from music previews, Kanye also introduced the album’s cover by projecting it on a large screen. Stated by one of the Twitter users, “If I could describe this album cover it would be Biblical Art piece meets Microsoft Paint. ”
