Kanye West reveals the title of his new album

03 March 2015, 07:57

Los Angeles - Kanye West has named his new album So Help Me God.

The 37-year-old rapper revealed the title of the follow-up to his 2013 Yeezus LP on Twitter alongside an image of four lowercase 'm's, connected in a diamond shape, which is a 13th century Monastic symbol of the Virgin Mary, though it is unclear whether this will be the record's artwork.

The album doesn't have an official release date as Kanye recently declared he intends to bring it out as a surprise for fans.

He said: "Release dates are played out.

"So, the surprise is going to be a surprise. There goes the surprise!"

Kanye also claimed the new record will be a "service to the people".

He said: "My last album was a protest of music.

"But this album is just embracing the music, embracing joy and just being a service to the people."

The Bound 2 rapper - who has 20-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West - has previously spoken of how he thinks Christianity is "awesome" because he can "portray God" however he chooses.

She makes him smile...Thank you @AlexanderWangNY for this outfit you made for North!!!!

He said: "You know, what's awesome about Christianity is that we're allowed to portray God.

"We're allowed to, you know, draw an image of Him, we're allowed to make movies about Him...So that's just what's really awesome about Christianity. That's one of the awesome things."

As well as his new and last album titles, Kanye has previously used religious references on songs I Am a God, Jesus Walks and teamed up with Jay Z and Frank Ocean on No Church in the Wild.
