Kanye West is once again poised to dominate all conversations (well, him and the weather) leading up to and during Fashion Month. According to several pieces of Internet evidence, the rapper-turned-designer plans to release his new album "Swish" and Yeezy Season 3 simultaneously on the first official day of New York Fashion Week, Feb. 11, in a massive event at Madison Square Garden — where only Macy's has bravely staged a fashion event before. And you might be able to be there.
According to a Ticketmaster page that no longer exists, tickets for the event will be available for presale on Wednesday, and go on sale to the general public this Friday, Jan. 29. If you're not going to be in New York, the event, like past Yeezy seasons, will be broadcast live at various theaters around the world. Either way, you're going to have to make yourself available at 4 p.m. on a Thursday for at least a couple of hours since the show will inevitably start late.
West usually debuts a new song or two at his Fashion Week presentations, but according to a page on CineWorld that has also since been taken down, this event will include the unveiling of "Swish" in its entirety, and will be "one of the great musical events of the year." (Because, of course, "Swish" will be the best album of all time.) Vanessa Beecroft, his artistic collaborator for past shows, will also be involved, and a vague warning on the website reads: "Parental discretion is advised."
It's unclear whether West plans to perform his entire album live, this being an iconic live performance venue, or if the event will just be a very over-the-top listening party-slash-fashion show.
We've reached out to reps for West and Adidas and will report back once we know more.
Update #2: As of Wednesday morning, the Ticketmaster and CineWorld pages providing details of the event had been taken down.
Update #1: On Tuesday night, West announced via Twitter that his new album will henceforth be titled "Waves." So there you go.
