With an album title finally in place, Kanye West is launching his new LP (along with season three of his fashion line Yeezy) Thursday at a sold-out show in Madison Square Garden.

Watch the live stream here:

The rapper announced the name of his seventh album, “The Life of Pablo,” along with a track list, on Wednesday night. The tracks include “Father Stretch My Hands,” an ode to his father. West had previously considered the album titles “Waves,” “Swish” and “So Help Me God.”

The event is being streamed live to 700 theaters in 23 countries around the world, as well as on Tidal, where subscribers and nonsubscribers alike can watch on the music site’s homepage. The listening party, whose tickets sold out within 10 minutes of their release last week, also features a performance from conceptual artist Vanessa Beecroft.

Rihanna premiered her new album “Anti” on the service two weeks ago and Beyoncé released her single “Formation” there on Saturday — a day before her Super Bowl halftime performance. The Jay Z-owned streaming music service signed up 1 million trial subscribers as part of a promotion with Samsung in a matter of hours following the release of Rihanna’s album.

      Instead of wasting time & money on Kanye’s crap, get some Earth, Wind & Fire albums & hear what music is supposed to sound like. The mindless sheeple would rather hear beats, autotune & sampling than horns, guitars, & drums.

      How come there aren’t any white people in this video, Kayne?

      This was amazing and what amazing ideas. But I feel bad for those models lol. The dude’s prolly crying because he has to use the bathroom.

    5. Th internet has allowed people like Kayne West and the Kardashians, Jenners to overrate themselves and it’s getting so bad. The outfits he takes pride in designing are truly ugly and where is his new baby son? Is he really considered a singer, geez.

        Then you simply don’t understand him… He has a very different mindset.. You obviously don’t see it so don’t watch.

          And with the help of your tinfoil hat and your tin-plated ears, you understand the god Kanye in ways beyond the ken of mere music-loving mortals like yours truly. Well done, oh chosen one. And give my regards to the little green men in the flying saucer too, ‘kay…?
