Kanye is getting back in the studio and clearing his schedule to put in work on his new album. Y After news that his Australian tour dates would be postponed till September hit, his tour DJ took to Twitter to put producers hoping for placement on the project to get the Yeezus out of them.

While details about Yeezy’s new LP are slim, he spoke about his next project in a conversation with architect Jacques Herzog at Art Basel in Miami last December. “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.”
