Kanye West’s upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live has led to speculation that he may soon announce his sixth solo album, the follow-up to 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. According to New York City radio DJ Peter Rosenberg, the album is in fact complete, and West’s record label Def Jam recently hosted a listening party. Rosenberg went on to describe the album as “dark.”

West reportedly recorded the album in Paris alongside a number of guest contributors, everyone from Daft Punk and TNGHT to Chief Keef and Azealia Banks.

Here’s audio of Rosenberg discussing West’s new album on air (via Kanye To The).

Also check out this November 2010 interview with West, in which he discusses the process behind My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

I really hope he doesn’t talk about how he designs clothes and wears his designer clothes and how he could drive lambos cuz he’s so rich, this guy really could come out with masterpieces and hopefully he’s not sucked in to this main stream crap like he has been recently…. I mean its like a line jay z said, something like “rather be over rated than under paid” Kanyes Dark beautiful twisted fantasy sold the least amount of albums, maybe because of pirating but whatever…. ever since that album kanye has been coming out with superficial crap, very few times i hear him rapping about meaningful shit like “new day” in watch the throne, all i’m saying is this next album might be an “O.N.I.F.C.” to me, wiz got old played out recycling lines talking about how rich he is….. hopefully it ain’t this guy made graduation late registration college dropout 808’s!!!! come on!!!! hopefully it has substance cuz kendrick just raped it with his album and section 80 was super raw. then again wiz got wifed up and getting a kid so he fell off, hopefully it don’t happen the same to kanye he really one of my favorites im excited

If you listened to Rosenburg, AT ALL, you would gather that Ye is a lot more selfless on this album. He’s going for the Zach De La Rocha RATM sound. I, for one, can’t wait.

Bro for real 808’s and heartbreak has to be one of the most emotional honest direct masterpiece to play on the face of this earth that shit was raw and if you didn’t like that then your whole perspective is wack

i didn’t like it because of Robo cop, street lights, bad news and others with a lot of the excessive robot voice. I think i understand the album as a whole. I just dont like the overuse of autotune/robot voice

Hey Alex, were you going to cite your KTT sources for this or not?
