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.
