kanye west jesus is king album coverIn just 27 minutes Kanye West makes one of the most powerful statements of his career as he embraces his faith with unwavering passion.

This is for all intents and purposes an unashamedly gospel record, with choirs and church organs making themselves known within the album’s first few minutes. Dizzying synths shift the direction of the album as they steer On God, before Everything We Need ushers in a showstopping collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign and Ant Clemons.

As one of music’s most polarizing figures, West’s work is subject to intense security, but on JESUS IS KING West casts these critics aside to articulate his message clearer than ever before.

JESUS IS KING by Kanye West is out now via Concord.
