The characterize modified into initially due out September 27, and modified into then pushed to September 29, but it never arrived, to fans' consternation and disappointment.

Multiple release dates for the album, which apparently sees the mercurial artist take a sharp departure from rap to gospel, have come in gone in the past month.

In August 2019, West's wife Kim Kardashian reannounced the album as Jesus Is King, widely anticipated to be released simultaneously with a concert film of the same name on 25 October, 2019.

West has long included tinges of religiosity in his music, most blatantly with his 2004 hit "Jesus Walks".
