Towards the end of October Kanye announced that the collaborative EP, Watch The Throne, with Jay-Z has turned into a full length album that was originally scheduled for a Dec 7th release.
The release date has changed, as I had the opportunity to sit in on a Kanye West conference call yesterday afternoon and Ye stated that the Watch The Throne project can be expected in early 2011, so he has time to concentrate on his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which hits stores on November 22nd.
Jay-Z also made a statement on the Tim Westwood show earlier this week addressing the forthcoming project.
“Before I came into London we were in Bath at Peter Gabriel’s studio. We recorded some songs there. It’s exciting that its coming out…[We’re] pretty close.”
