Kanye West Announces New 'Jesus Is Born' Album Before 'Jesus Is King' Even Drops

He says the album will be out on Christmas Day.

With Kanye West's ninth studio album, Jesus Is King, rapidly approaching, Yeezy already has his sights set on his next studio effort. During his Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, West spilled the beans and revealed that his Sunday Service album Jesus Is Born will be dropping on Christmas.

"Sunday Service album, Jesus is Born, on Christmas is coming," he succinctly said to Lowe. Since the start of the year, West has provided a multitude of Sunday Service events, featuring his esteemed choir. The Chicago lyricist even brought his Gospel-laden attraction to Coachella for an Easter special last April. It's unclear if West's Sunday Service project will be a live album or a studio version of the tracks he's recently performed.

During past Sunday Services, West has performed new tracks and even remixed several popular records such as Aaliyah's "At Your Best" and Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode." 

As far as Jesus Is King is concerned, the elusive ninth album is expected to drop Friday after experiencing a bevy of delays.
