    Kanye West's new album The Life of Pablo has arrived, and it's heavy on gospel. The artist's seventh LP (not counting the Jay-Z collab album, 2011's Watch The Throne) has been a long time coming. After a slew of buzz-generating singles including "No More Parties in LA" [ft Kendrick Lamar], and "Real Friends" [ft. Ty Dolla $ign]; after a Twitter campaign that had fans voting for the name of the album during the proposed week of its release; and after countless other oddball hijinks, it's finally here.

    The follow-up to 2013's Yeezus was once titled So Help Me God with plans for 2014 release. In the ensuing years this album never materialized, although single tracks like "All Day" and "Only One" surfaced. Neither of those songs appear on The Life of Pablo's 18-song, hour-long final cut, which now appears as follows:

    The Life of Pablo Tracklist:
    1. Ultra Light Beams (ft. The-Dream and Kirk Franklin)
    2. Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 (ft. Kid Cudi)
    3. Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2 (ft. Desiigner)
    4. Famous (ft. Rihanna)
    5. Feedback
    6. Low Lights
    7. Highlights (ft. Young Thug)
    8. Freestyle 4 (ft. Desiigner)
    9. I Miss the Old Kanye
    10. Waves (ft. Chris Brown)
    11. FML (ft. The Weeknd)
    12. Real Friends (ft. Ty Dolla $ign)
    13. Wolves (ft. Frank Ocean and Caroline Shaw)
    14. Silver Surfer Intermission
    15. 30 Hours (ft. André 3000)
    16. No More Parties in L.A. (ft. Kendrick Lamar)
    17. FACTS (Charlie Heat Version)
    18. Fade (ft. Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign)

    The roll-out to this album was exceptional and messy, but now after much hoopla, culminating with Thursday's Madison Square Garden release party and fashion show, the album is available for streaming on Tidal, which means the music can finally speak for itself.

    For the time being, The Life of Pablo is exclusively available through Tidal, the music streaming service Jay-Z acquired and revamped early last year.

    According to Pitchfork, "The album will soon be made available on KanyeWest.com. After one week as a Tidal exclusive, the album will be available on all major digital retail and streaming outlets." http://pitchfork.com/news/63408-kanye-wests-the-life-of-pablo-is-out-now/
