American rapper Kanye West has announced a new album on Instagram. The 44-year-old posted a photo of a burning house on Thursday with the number two spelled out five times.

He wrote in capital letters: “Donda 2 arrives on 2 22 22”. The album will be produced by rapper Future.

It remains to be seen how seriously the announcement should be taken. Kanye West is not known for meeting deadlines. The eccentric musician, who only goes by “Ye”, released his tenth studio album “Donda” in August 2021 with a big delay. The album is named after the rapper’s mother. (dpa)
