Kanye West Recorded Enough Material For Another Album

Posted by - 07:42 AM on 06/27/13
In a new interview, Rick Rubin stated that Kanye West recorded enough music for another full album while working on Yeezus. This should all be taken with a grain of salt considering how much material Kanye records for each album that never sees the light of day.
Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, “Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.” That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, “That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!”

I think that was the biggest shock with the album...

10 songs
41 minutes

...not that there is anything the matter with that, but it's kanye, who has always had long albums!

According to this as well, a lot of what got cut was sounding like vintage Kanye:

I wouldn't count on an album of outtakes coming out anytime soon. Or any material for that matter but who knows.

God I hope not.

Those 10 songs were more than enough. That is if they are in the same vein as the album.

Sometimes I dream of the day years from now when Kanye puts out all of the songs he never released. He probably wouldn't, but I still dream...

while i wouldnt be pissed about having more music (obviously), releasing two albums in one year is like "the thing to do" in 2013, it seems, and that's lame to me.

the real question here is "Has the internet killed the double album?"
