New Kanye Album Gets a Title, Possible Release Date


The rumored upcoming Kanye West album — from which "Love Lockdown," the song he performed at the VMAs, is purportedly the first single — is called 808's & Heartbreak and will be out on December 16, according to Amazon and Target. Of course, both sites claim the record is being released via Pendulum Records, and that certainly isn't true, so we await final confirmation on all of this from Kanye's blog, which we expect to happen any minute now.
