The seventh coming of Kanye West is imminent. On Monday, hip-hop's (and possibly the world's) greatest egotist announced the tracklisting for seventh album Swish, then earlier today he announced it all over again with new title Waves. Nothing ever runs smoothly in Kanye World, but we know there'll be new music soon and we know when we'll hear it.

"So happy to be finished with the best album of all time," West said this week with characteristic modesty, as he unveiled Swish's (now Waves') running order complete with graffiti from his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.

No room for FourFiveSeconds, West's collaboration with Rihanna and Paul McCartney from early 2015 (perhaps Rihanna's saving that for the equally long-awaited ANTI?), nor the McCartney-fuelled One Day, nor All Day (another early 2015 track), but we can see Wolves (featuring Sia) and No More Parties In LA (a hook-up with rapper Kendrick Lamar), as well as recent release Real Friends, so there's familiar stuff on board.

Of course, West then pulled the rug out today by changing the title of the album and adding a few 'Acts', as well as tacking another new track Ultra Light Beam to the end of the album. The rest of the family went mad with the biro too.

And things may change again. But what seems solid is West will debut the album at New York's Madison Square Gardens on 11 February, its day of release, and the event will be broadcast in cinemas worldwide. If you want to get involved, check out West's website.

So, all perfectly clear. For now.
