Kanye West ‘living inside stadium’ to finish new album

Written by on 27/07/2021

Kanye West is said to have made himself at home in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium as he finishes work on his much-hyped new album Donda.

Rumours of his temporary home swirled at the weekend after he was spotted at a Major League Soccer game in the stadium, just days after he held a listening party at the venue.

West also posted a number of videos from inside the stadium, showing him surrounded by chanting football fans.

A representative for the singer – speaking anonymously – told the Associated Press news agency that West was planning to stay in the Atlanta stadium while he completes Donda, which he promised to release a year ago.

His move to Georgia comes after he previously left his family home in California for his ranch in Wyoming.

Estranged wife Kim Kardashian cited it as one of the reasons for beginning divorce proceedings against him.

Donda, named in tribute to his late mother, was teased last July but is now due out on 6 August.

West performed at the centre of the stadium without a microphone when the album played, with the new record featuring samples of his mother’s voice throughout.

It is a follow-up to his 2019 gospel album Jesus is King, which won best contemporary Christian music album at the Grammys earlier this year.
