Kanye West has released a new album with his Sunday Service choir, called’ Jesus Is Born’.
The rapper had taunted that the record would arrive on Christmas Day and, unlike with its predecessor ‘Jesus Is King’, lodged to his promised timeframe.
‘Jesus Is Born’ aspects 19 racetracks, including gospel different versions of hymns from his back catalogue like’ Ultralight Beam’ and songs that have featured at his various Sunday Service conferences throughout 2019. The album was executive produced by West and can be streamed below now.
The new record follows’ Jesus Is King’, which was originally due for liberation on September 27 but eventually arrived on October 25. According to reports, part of the reason for the interruption was down to the rapper revising the racetracks, even though the album was “finished”.
In a four-star review, NME said: “It’s true that’ Jesus Is King’ lacks the goofball sense of humour that always stimulated Kanye West albums so much fun. But what’s been sacrificed has been partly compensated for with heat and hope for the future.”
