Kanye West Renames Album ‘Waves,’ Shares Updated Track List
#Waves the album formally known as Swish,” Kanye wrote on Twitter Tuesday night, just after posting an…updated version of his upcoming album’s track list. It’s now split up into three acts, with a new track called “Ultra Light Beam” added via Ye’s red editing pen at the bottom. The most recent version of the track list comes via producer Mike Dean — view it below.
Kylie’s not the only signature anymore: There’s wife Kim Kardashian, plus several others including Chance the Rapper, The-Dream, ASAP Rocky, Fonzworth Bentley and Kanye’s good friend Sakiya Sandifer. Is “Vicious” Vic Mensa? Now we’re just wildly speculating, though he and Kanye did collaborate on “U Mad” last year.

Kanye will debut his new album live at Madison Square Garden during his Yeezy Season 3 presentation on February 11 at New York Fashion Week. Pre-sale tickets begin tomorrow on Ticketmaster, and the general on-sale starts on January 29. Note: Complex reports that people attempting to buy tickets have been told pre-sale has hit a snag over “creative differences,” and they may not be for sale until the morning Thursday, January 28.
Original post: Kylie Jenner is proving to be a particularly ~zany~ sister-in-law.
Very early this morning (January 25), Kanye West, who’s been teasing pieces of his forthcoming Swish, tweeted the project’s complete, 10-piece track list. In inky chicken-scratch jotted onto a hole-punched legal pad, West confirmed that “No More Parties in L.A.” and “Fade” made the cut alongside new tracks like “Father Stretch My Hands” and “High Lights.”
And, whether ‘Ye liked it or not, the announcement was made as a collaborative effort — below his notes was a message from his wife’s sister, who boldly noted “Kylie was here” in contrasting red ink. So silly!

“So happy to be finished with the best album of all time,” Kanye noted with the image.
Earlier this month, Khloe Kardashian told Cosmopolitan Kanye considers the Kardashian/Jenner family’s input while recording, and respects notes Khloe and her sisters offer in the studio.
“…he really cares about our opinions, which I find even cooler, because we’re not artists, obviously, but he respects what we say so much,” Khloe shares. “He is so passionate. He’s like, every bit the meaning of an artist. He’s so into his craft, and just to see him at work and see how much he respects our opinions, all of us sisters, he wants us all in the studio at different times. Thank god we all live a block away from each other.”
