It’s a good Friday indeed for Kanye West fans.

Hours after sharing his new track “Real Friends,” the hip-hop artist tweeted the release date for his seventh studio album, SWISH. It’s coming Feb. 11.

SWISH has been on deck since West’s last solo album, Yeezus, which came out in June 2013. He declared the record would be titled So Help Me God last March before changing it to SWISH in May.

A handful of cuts have been released over the last 12-plus months with varying sounds. West unveiled his ode to his mother and daughter, “Only One” with Paul McCartney, on 2014 New Year’s Eve and followed it up with the Rihanna-McCartney collab of “FourFiveSeconds.”

Two songs debuted at West’s fashion shows last year: the eerie “Wolves” with Vic Mensa and Sia, as well as “Fade” with Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone. In between those two was “All Day,” debuted with flame-throwing aplomb at the 2015 BRIT Awards.

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, announced this week that the 38-year-old MC would release new music on Fridays, echoing the lead-up to West’s 2010 landmark album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
