Kanye West and Jay-Z’s collaborative Watch the Throne project has grown into a full-length album. West originally announced this summer that he and his mentor were recording a five-song EP together. But in a new video interview with MTV, West revealed they have enough music for a longer release.
“We’re putting out a whole album now,” West said. “We did like five [songs] so far, and then a few of them kind of were out there, and I put them on my album. Sorry, Jay!” He was presumably referring to tracks like “Monster” and “So Appalled,” which he has offered as free downloads. “But we’ve got some more, and we’re going to the south of France at the end of this month just to record our ideas.”
Thus far no specific release plans for the project have been announced. Think we’ll ever get to hear Watch the Throne? Speak up in the comments.
