Kanye West reveals 'Swish' release date

Kanye West Drops New Song and Clip Featuring Kendrick Lamar

Kanye West sent out a tweet on Friday (Jan. 8), possibly announcing a Feb. 11 release date for his long-anticipated album, Swish.

The message simply said, "Swish February 11 16," but for an album the public's been waiting about a year to hear, that should be about enough to get people predicting Yeezy Season will soon be upon us.

The tweet follows West's release earlier Friday of the new song "Real Friends" and another new snippet of the track "No More Parties in LA" with Kendrick Lamar earlier Friday.

Since Feb. 11 is a Thursday, West may be planning a release that bucks the standard global album release day. Or, he may drop it at 12 a.m. somewhere on Friday, Feb. 12, which would still be Feb. 11 in other parts of the world.

Billboard reached out to West's camp for comment, but had not heard back at publishing.
