Kanye West Working On New Album?


Kanye West took the drastic and mysterious step of removing himself from Twitter and Instagram, earlier this week and although that is not so good news for Kanye fans, there may be a silver lining to the musician removing himself from social media, and as silver lining’s come this is a pretty good one!

It is reported that Kanye has taken himself away from all distractions in order to concentrate on recording his new album. TMZ reports that Kanye has for the time being moved to a mountaintop retreat in Wyoming and he has been there for around a week. Kanye’s recent move to this secluded spot in Wyoming would also explain his absence from this year’s Met Gala.

There is history of Kanye moving away to focus on his creative process, in 2009/2010 Yeezy similarly moved to Hawaii to record his platinum selling album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’. So if being away from the public eye helps his creative process in the same way that it did for that album then surely it can’t be a bad thing because that album provided the world with some of Kanye’s best work to date and gave fans a true glimpse into the musicians world.

Kanye has previously stated that his next album will be called ‘Turbo Grafx 16′ which is a shoutout to his deep love for video games as a kid. However the title of last year’s platinum selling album ‘The Life of Pablo’ changed numerous times before he decided on the final name. So for now we know the name of the upcoming album, but don’t be surprised if Kanye has a light bulb moment and thinks of an even better for his next project.
