Is Kanye West Working on a New Album on Top of a Wyoming Mountain?
Folks have been wondering what Kanye West is up to lately. First, he didn’t show up to the Met Gala with his wife Kim Kardashian and after announcing a kid’s clothing line, abruptly deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Well, TMZ claims to know what’s up with ‘Ye—he’s on top of a mountain at a retreat somewhere in Wyoming making new music.
The site claims that he’s been there for a week and also went to the undisclosed location two weeks earlier to work. After the events of the past year, including his hospitalization back in November 2016, sources say that Kanye is basically trying to center himself and get his creative mojo back on track.
His last album, The Life of Pablo, was released to mixed reviews, though it performed well. Back in April, it became the first streaming-only album to go platinum. It was also innovative in that it was an ongoing project, as ‘Ye kept returning to make tweaks and updates to the record.
This isn’t the first time Kanye has secluded himself to focus on music. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which is widely hailed as perhaps his best work, was recorded in Hawaii, where he was able to find privacy and obviously, inspiration.
Hopefully, the Wyoming mountains have the same effect on his creativity.
