Kanye West in 'Much Better Place Mentally' as He 'Can't Wait to Tour' After New Album: Source
On Friday, the rapper dropped his latest album Jesus Is King
Kanye West is feeling “excited” about his new music.
On Friday, the 42-year-old rapper dropped his latest album Jesus Is King — and a source tells PEOPLE that he is excitedly planning a tour.
“Kanye can’t wait to tour,” the source says. “He is excited about his new music. He is putting together a tour schedule right now. He wants to start the tour as soon as possible.”
Meanwhile, West’s wife Kim Kardashian West is also excited about the possibility of an upcoming tour, but still worries about her husband.
“Kim supports a tour, but still has concerns,” the source says. “She doesn’t want him to go crazy and do an intense tour with no breaks. She wants him to focus on his wellbeing and mental health too.”
West debuted his gospel-inspired ninth solo album and accompanying IMAX film Jesus Is King on Friday — nearly a month after the album’s original release date. The album includes spiritual-themed titles such as “God Is,” “Follow God”, “On God,” “Use the Gospel,” “Jesus Is Lord” and “Selah.”
On Sunday, West held his Sunday Service event in Los Angeles where Kardashian West and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian as well as Kendall Jenner and their momager Kris Jenner. Daughter North West, 6, was singing on stage with her dad as seen in multiple Instagram Stories shared by family members.
During an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 published on Thursday, West explained how he believes it’s his job now to “spread the gospel” and “let people know what Jesus has done for me.”
“I’ve spread a lot of things,” he said. “There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting you know what the Hennessy had done for me, but now I’m letting you know what Jesus has done for me, and in that I’m no longer a slave, I’m a son now, a son of God. I’m free.”
A source told PEOPLE earlier this week that Kardashian West, 39, is a fan of West’s transition to gospel music and “much prefers his new album over previous ones.”
“This one is so much more mature and spiritual,” the source said. “Like music that their kids can actually listen to. It doesn’t have any foul language. She loves how Kanye is evolving.”
“When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything,” West said during the interview. “Everyone — this is my experience, other people have different experiences — everyone now is an actor. Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things.”
“If you don’t take medication every day to keep you at a certain state, you have a potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you can even end up in the hospital,” West added.
“It is an emotional process, for sure,” she said. “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.”
