Kanye West 'won't sleep' until Jesus Is King is out as he misses release date

Kanye West has promised he ‘won’t sleep’ until Jesus Is King is out after fans were left heartbroken when he missed the release time.

After the rapper promised a midnight release on 25 October, fans were disappointed when the new record failed to materialise.

The 42-year-old sent fans into meltdown earlier this week, when he tweeted: ‘“JESUS IS KING” OCT 25th.’

He went silent on social media before tweeting: ‘“JESUS IS KING” Midnight,’ with a different tracklist to the one his wife Kim Kardashian previously released.

In fact, only four of the titles of Kim’s list – Selah, Hands On, God Is, and Water – also appeared on Kanye’s new list.

However, with midnight coming and going with no album drop, fans have been left just a little gutted.

Kim previously revealed a potential track list for Jesus Is King, which Kanye had scrawled on a notepad from a Marriott hotel.

According to her, the album was set to feature songs called Up From The Ashes, Follow God, On God, Water, Sunday, LA Monster, New Body, Use This Gospel, Hands On and Selah.

The new spiritual direction of his music has been inspired by his Sunday Service, which has seen him remix his tracks and sing with a gospel choir in stunning locations.

And it seems not sleeping isn’t the only unusual condition Kanye’s put on his album release, with him claiming he’s banned producers from engaging in premarital sex.

‘Some people drown themselves in drugs, and I drown myself in my addiction: sex,’ he said.

Discussing the production of Jesus Is King, West – who describes himself as a Christian and has launched his own church service – said he asked those working on the album not to have premarital sex.

He said on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show: ‘There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album.

‘There were times where I went to people that were working on other projects and said, can you just work and focus on this?

‘I thought if we could all focus and fast – families who pray together stay together.’

Here’s hoping it gets released soon.
