Kanye West’s next album may be a quickie. During a conversation with architect Jacques Herzog at Art Basel in Miami, Kanye revealed potential plans for a brief track list on his next project.

“I think my next album is going to be eight songs,” he said when asked about pursing both music and art. “It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn’t made Yeezus, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.”

He also talked about being a student of art. The conversation was part of Surface Magazine’s Design Dialogues talk series at the Moore Building in Miami’s Design District.
