Kanye West, who has been hosting a regular worship event called “Sunday Service,” is set to release his new record, Jesus Is King, September 27.

His wife, Kim Kardashian West, released the full track-list via Twitter, revealing that the album will feature songs titled, “Selah,” “God Is,” “Wake the Dead,” “Through the Valley,” “Sunday,” “Baptized” and “Sweet Jesus.”

The photo released by Kardashian West features the tracklist scribbled on a notepad, with an open Bible next to it which has been opened to Psalm 57.

The new record will also contain a track called “Water,” which Kanye performed at his “Sunday Service” set during the Coachella music festival:

“Clean us like the rain of spring, let your light reflect on me, I promise I’m not hiding anything,” the song goes. “We’ll get through it, because of your love.”

Reaction to the announcement was one of excitement and anticipation, on the whole. “I’m atheist as hell but if Ye says Jesus walks, then Jesus is walking alright,” one person wrote on Reddit.

“If ye gives us a full-on #sundayservice album I’ll forgive him all his sins,” another added on Twitter.

Earlier this month, pop star Tori Kelly showed up at Kanye’s worship service, which was held at the California Worship Center. Prior to that, LA pastor Rich Wilkerson preached a powerful message at the gathering.

Then, yesterday, Justin Bieber confirmed that he would be keen to sing at the service, after leading worship at a Beverly Hills church on Wednesday night.
