Kanye West is rolling out 'best album of all time' with a performance streamed across the world

Kanye West will release his seventh album, “Waves,” February 11 with a performance at Madison Square Garden that will be streamed live in select theatres around the world.

Yeezy Season 3, as it’s called in an announcement with details Monday, will feature a performance by conceptual artist Vanessa Beecroft, who also performed at West’s fashion shows, Yeezy Season 1 and Season 2.

A message on the ticket site explains that the event will be streamed “via satellite,” so “local weather conditions could possibly affect the transmission of content to each cinema.” The tickets are non-refundable and can be purchased here. There are currently no North American showings listed.  

“Waves” will include “Wolves,” “Fade,” “No More Parties in L.A.,” and “Real Friends.” West revealed a track list, boasting that he’s “finished with the best album of all time.”

As sales of albums continue to decline across the board, major artists struggle to find ways to make their album rollouts events that stand out amid the noise (much like Adele did with “25”). Kanye is making his a literal event at a venue near you.
