Finally, after three days of teasing, Kanye West has released his new album So Help Me God Swish Waves The Life off Pablo.

After performing album track “Ultra Light Beams” on SNL, the rapper/producer/Mr Kardashian announced the 18-track record would be exclusively released on Jay Z’s TIDAL. 

Pablo will also be made available to download from West’s official website, receiving a wide release in a week’s time.

It took over 40 minutes for the album to appear on TIDAL, with many fans growing impatient and Kim Kardashian tweeting that West’s website was crashing due to unprecedented demand.

Listen through TIDAL here, but note you need to sign up to the streaming service to listen. If you are not a member, you can sign up to the service for a 30 day free trial, or just wait a week until it is on Spotify.

In recent weeks, TIDAL has released a growing number of exclusives, including Beyoncé’s latest single “Formation”, which she performed at the Super Bowl, and Rihanna’s ANTI. 

The Life of Pablo is West’s seventh major solo-album release, and follows 2013’s critically acclaimed experimental album Yeezus. 

The track listing contains the already released “Real Friends”, “30 Hours” and Kendrick Lamar featuring “No More Parties in LA”, while an updated version of “FACTS” also appears. 

West recently blamed Chance the Rapper - who appears on the tracks “Ultralight Beam” and “Waves” - for the albums delay. In a Tweet, West also claimed he was $53 million in debt, and said that the Pablo the album title refers to is Saint Paul, rather than Pablo Picasso which many had believed.
