When Kanye brags, there’s an odd combination of egomania and truth to it that makes it impossible to discount it entirely as the former. So when last night he tweeted about having created “the best album of all time,” surely eye-rolls were accompanied by perked ears. This may be the most subjective statement imaginable, but given Kanye’s track record for creating best albums of the year for whatever year they’re released, it doesn’t seem too farfetched to assume that his new album, Swish, will likewise be some kind of (sure, subjective) superlative, and that, despite its hyperbole, you should be very excited about this Tweet:
The excitement doesn’t just come in regards to Kanye saying it’s the best album of all time (which is, if you think about it, at once braggadocios and actually humble: it means he’s saying it’s better than his other albums), but in the fact that this statement accompanied the track list you likely noticed above. It contains some previously released tracks like “Real Friends” and “No More Parties in L.A.,” some tracks for which we don’t know what to expect, and Kylie Jenner’s writing at the bottom of the page, which is presumably not a track at all.
The album will be out on February 11,
