Kanye West announces album title: So Help Me God

Rapper posts artwork of new album – which is likely to get a surprise release – on Twitter

We now know why Kanye West has been keeping his profile so high in recent weeks, with major radio interviews on both sides of the Atlantic, plus performances at both the Brits and the Grammys, as well as on the 40th anniversary Saturday Night Live show.

The rap star this weekend too to Twitter to unveil the title and artwork of his new album, though no further details were forthcoming. He had already told the New York radio station Power 105 that his album would arrive in a “surprise” fashion. And we now know it will be called So Help Me God.

In other Kanye news, he appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday night, performing Only One. But Ross was unable to get any actual chat out of West, who finished his performance by lying down on the stage and refusing to speak.
