If you want to hear Kanye West‘s new album Donda, you’re going to have to pay for it.

After images and a track listing for his new album Donda circulated online, Live Nation and Ticketmaster have announced that West is hosting a listening party in Atlanta, GA where paying fans can officially preview West’s music. The Donda listening party will take place at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday, July 22nd with a scheduled start time of 8 p.m. ET. Those interested in attending can purchase their ticket on Monday at ticketmaster. According to Live Nation, the prices of tickets are set at $50.00 and $20.00.  

This is not the first time West has hosted a listening event at a concert venue. In 2016, he previewed The Life of Pablo during his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden.

Donda marks West’s first LP since 2019’s Jesus Is Born, a gospel-inspired album recorded with his Sunday Service Choir. West has not yet shared if Donda will be another Sunday Service album or an official return to hip-hop.
