There is really no quiet year for Kanye West, who has just teased a new studio album called The land of God, alongside an excerpt from a song called “Wash Us In The Blood”. West is scheduled to release a track clip tomorrow at 10 a.m.ET.
The cover of the song is simple and black, with the title of the song written all around the illustration in old English characters, which gives it a Gothic touch which corresponds to its corresponding clip. The clip shows a gospel singer, with words from song titles and albums that rarely appear, while messy ambient sounds with industrial influences playing alongside.

A release date has not yet been announced for the album, but it should be noted that a majority of West’s most recent album releases in the past decade, such as Jesus is king, is and Pablo’s life, were all delayed several times before their official release. West also announced projects that have never been officially released or whose names have changed, such as Yandhi in 2018, Turbo Grax 16 from 2016 to 2018 and Good ass, which was originally supposed to be its sequel to that of 2007 Graduation, before the realization of 808 and Heartbreak, although it was announced more recently as a collaborative project alongside Chance The Rapper.
West also had a busy year outside of music and donated $ 2 million to the families of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery this year. He also teased a trailer for a Children see ghosts entertainment program, with him and Kid Cudi, who form the titular musical duo.
