YANDHI, Kanye West’s follow-up to his 2013 album, YEEZUS, is slated to release next week, September 29. After posting a teaser three days ago, the artist has now shared a closer look at the holographic cover art in action.
The artwork is similar to the YEEZUS cover and features a purple MiniDisc CD case. Posting on IG, West demonstrated how the case appears in 3D-form. It can be seen spinning atop his iPhone screen with a series of emoji featured underneath. “YANDHI 9 29 18” reads the caption.
“Yandhi” is a portmanteau of “Ye” and “Gahndhi” just as “Yeezus” was a portmanteau of “Ye” and “Jesus.” It will be West’s third release of 2018 following Ye and the collaborative Kids See Ghosts project with Kid Cudi. West is scheduled to appear on Saturday Night Live on the same day the record releases next week.
What do you make of the artwork? Novel or just a rehash? Let us know in the comments below.
The other day, West appeared to fire shots at Drake and Nick Cannon in an Instagram video.
