The long-awaited new album had previously been set for a September 27 drop date — and then September 29 — but Kanye had to tweak it some more. Over the weekend, his Sunday Service event popped up at Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he reportedly finally set the release date for the record.
According to multiple social media reports from attendees, Kanye said the album would "tentatively" arrive on October 25. That's the same day his IMAX film of the same name is set to premiere in theatres.
Read the social media report below, and start moving things around to clear that weekend so you can sit around and wait.

As of yesterday, he was still working on new music, which sounds amazing. The IMAX film was very moving. He also read us scriptures.
