For the better part of this year, Kanye West has been conducting his own musical outdoor church-style services, called Kanye West’s Sunday Services, and it’s quickly become the hottest cult in town! It’s great for people who want a church experience that focuses less on God, and more on a dude who thinks he’s God and has made it very clear that he’s in it for the $$$. The only problem is, Kanye’s Sunday Services are super exclusive, and admission is reserved for only the most elite VIPs.
But it looks like Kanye is finally going to open his church up to everyone. Kim Kardashian recently tweeted a picture of what appears to be the track listing of a new album of spiritual songs titled Jesus Is King.
Kim tweeted the following picture. No explanation for the picture was given besides the praying hands Emoji.

As you can see, there’s a notepad featuring what is assumed to be the titles of 12 tracks, next to a Bible opened to Psalm 57. Psalm is the name of Kanye and Kim’s 4th child. The second part of Psalm 57 is thought to be about exercising praise. There’s also another notebook with random spiritual-sounding words written on it, like kingdom, glory, lion, and something that looks like “rexing.” Since it’s Kanye, I bet that word is actually pronounced re-cross-ing, because he’s redesigning the cross or something. “Crosses are so tired, they’re not hype enough. Kanye’s cross will be so dope. It’s got my face on it, and it’s made out of the metal from old tuna cans, only $980.”
Vulture points out that one of the songs – Water – debuted at Coachella this year. So that’s kind of all the confirmation we need that on September 27th, Kanye will be dropping a “Christian” album. Christian-in-quotes, because I don’t exactly remember Jesus delivering a sermon promoting the virtues of wealth-hoarding or corruption.
In case you can’t read the track listing, here it is:
JESUS IS KING
Wake The Dead
Through The Valley
Because most of those titles sound like they were picked at random from a youth group praise poster, I’m not entirely sure this isn’t just viral marketing for HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones. But it’s Kanye, which means that no matter how weird it seems, it’s probably very real. And again, because it’s Kanye (ie. 100% chance of WTF), I kind of hope that first song is an ode to PlugIns.
