Kanye West has said that the his new album has the initials T.L.O.P. but has still to confirm its full name.
With the record formerly known as 'So Help Me God', 'Swish' and 'Waves' due for release on Thursday (February 11), West is in the studio finishing the final verses. However, he took time out to share an update on its progress with Twitter followers as well as previewing the Yeezy season 3 clothing line he will launch alongside the record.
West says that anyone who guesses the initials of the album will win tickets to the Season 3 launch and a pair of Adidas Yeezys.

Another tweet sent by West saw him state that he needs to speak to Leonardo DiCaprio and boxer Floyd Mayweather. It is not clear about what, but he has spoken to Mike Tyson about it as well.

Initially announced as 'So Help Me God' in March 2015, West then changed his album's title to 'Swish' a few months later in May 2015. Just a couple of weeks prior to the album's official release though, West changed the name again to 'Waves'.
Wife Kim Kardashian later took to Twitter to ask fans which name they prefer, with the majority voting in favour of 'So Help Me God'.
West will launch his new album with a listening party and fashion show at New York's Madison Square Garden on Thursday (February 11). The arena event will mark the launch of West's Yeezy Season 3 range with Adidas and the release of his new album. It will be live-streamed at cinemas worldwide.
