Kanye West To Premiere “SWISH” at Fashion Show in Madison Square Garden

Kanye West SWISH premiere

We’re officially in the midst of Yeezy season kids. After the release of his “No More Parties In L.A.” and “Real Friends,” as well as the release of the official tracklist for SWISH (which he described as “the greatest album of all time”), it appears that Kanye West has major plans for the release of his highly anticipated album. According to Reddit users, two major cinema chains – Cinemaxx in Germany and Cineworld in the U.K. – are advertising tickets for a screening of a fashion show centered around Yeezy Season 3 and the world premiere of SWISH.

According to the websites of both companies, West’s SWISH will debut in its entirety via a worldwide stream from New York City’s Madison Square Garden, with his visual art collaborator Vanessa Beercroft directly involved in the multimedia experience. Though no word has come from West’s camp officially, further investigation proves that this might be true, as the rapper tweeted out a photo of him looking at a picture of the Yeezy Season 3 – which happens to be the same flyer that is featured on the cinemas’ websites. Though Madison Square Garden doesn’t currently have anything booked for February 11, tickets are already available for German screenings, with showings beginning at 4:15pm EST.

If this is true, this should be one of the more interesting Yeezus moments in history to say the least. Revisit the full version of Kanye’s latest single “No More Parties In L.A.” here and, in case you missed it, be sure to check out the official tracklist to SWISH here.

UPDATE: Madison Square Garden just made the official announcement. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster starting for presale start tomorrow, while general sale starts January 29 at 10am. Get them here.

UPDATE: Kanye West has announced that he’s changing the title of his album to WAVES.
