Rapper Kanye West is preparing to release a new solo album this summer (11), just months after wowing critics with MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY.
The Stronger hitmaker's fifth release was named the album of 2010 in a string of end-of-year polls.
West has been recording a joint project, called Watch The Throne, with his hip-hop pal Jay-Z and the disc is due to hit retailers in March (11).
But the prolific star isn't stopping there - he has been hard at work on new material for his next solo album.
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com blog, he writes, "I'll be back this SUMMER!!!!!!!!!! IN THE STUDIO NOW... WATCH THE THRONE COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!! MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER..."
West also reveals he's nearly finished his next video for his star-studded single All of the Lights, which features a monster list of collaborators, including Rihanna, Sir Elton John, Alicia Keys, Fergie, John Legend and Kid Cudi.
