Kanye West has, for the third time, set a release date for his new album Jesus Is King.

Originally slated for September 27th, it was then delayed for a couple of days but hasn’t been heard from since. Now, Kanye has tweeted it’ll be released this Friday, October 25th, which makes sense given it’s also the date on which his documentary of the same name is set to premiere at select IMAX theaters.

Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience recently had an official trailer released after previews during events at Detroit’s Fox Theatre and Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre.

Filmed last summer, it follows West and his group of musicians as they performed songs from the album at the Roden Crater, the base of a new installation from James Turrell in Arizona’s Painted Desert. Additional photography took place on West’s ranch outside Cody, Wyoming.
