In the past year, Kanye West’s seventh album, Swish, has been subjected to multiple production delays, a name change, and the sky-high, ever-shifting standards of its creator. But West has finally deemed it ready for public consumption. His announcement: 

If we hold Kim Kardashian to her claim that West will release a new song every Friday until February 11, we should, at the very least, get four new songs before the album drops, in addition to the handful of tracks—“Wolves,” “Only One,” “All Day,” “FourFiveSeconds,” “Fade”—West has shared in the past year. Yeezy season is upon us. Your move, Drake.
