Um ... someone might need to check in with Kanye West.

The rapper is just finishing up his highly-touted upcoming album, announcing the track list and a Madison Square Garden debut earlier this week. But on Tuesday, Yeezy made a huge last-minute change, announcing on Twitter that he had changed the title of the album from Swish to Waves.

"New album title, WAVES," the 38-year-old rapper tweeted. That's it. That's all. Huh?

MUSIC: Kanye West to Debut New Album at Madison Square Garden, Promises 'the Album of the Life'

Earlier in the day, West was full of promises about the upcoming project, boasting on social media that, "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life."

The rapper is set to debut the album at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11, in an event the rapper is calling "Yeezy Season 3," echoing his previous fashion line releases. No word on whether or not there will be a name change for that event, which will also be live-streamed into theaters around the world.
