With the album and accompanying film due out tomorrow, Kanye West meets up with Zane Lowe to discuss Jesus Is King for an in depth Beats 1 interview. In addition to the conversation, West shares a preview of the Jesus Is King picture, which is coming to IMAX theaters October 25.

In the above clip, we see Kanye talking to Zane Lowe about his newfound faith in God and how the public viewed his mental health struggles.

"Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me," West begins. "I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting you know what the Hennessey had done for me, but now I’m letting you know what Jesus has done for me, and in that I’m no longer a slave, I’m a son now, a son of God. I’m free."

After touching on his spiritual relationship, Ye then transitions to his battle with mental health, saying, "The most space that I had to think is when I went to the hospital. One of the things that happened when I went to the hospital is I started reading the Bible and I started writing and copying out Bible verses and a person came to my house that wasn’t a Christian and told me come over, and 30 minutes later I was in handcuffs headed to the hospital. Now this person very well may have saved my life because when you’re in an episode you could jump off the side of a balcony you can stab your eye out you can do a lot of things when you’re ramped up like that, but one of the things that people do now is they try to discriminate against my mind and my thoughts because of that moment."
