Graduation, Kanye West's third effort, is to be released in the UK on Monday and the US the following day. The album has already garnered all kinds of critical praise from Rolling Stone, The Guardian, and AllHipHop.com and the first two singles, 'Can't Tell Me Nothing' and 'Stronger' have both proved commercial successes. The Chris Martin-backed 'Homecoming' is to be the third single.
Although I'm not the biggest Kanye West fan in the world, I did enjoy The College Dropout and Late Registration and it looks like Graduation will have a few gems to rub shoulders with classic Kanye cuts like 'Jesus Walks', 'School Spirit', and 'Gold Digger'. Grab the tracks below and judge for yourself; you can also stream the whole album here thanks to Power 105.1.
