Kanye West's new album Waves 'best of all time'

KANYE West has taken to Twitter to boast about his new album Waves, insisting "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life."

Just days after claiming his forthcoming LP is "the best album of all time", Kanye followed it up by insisting that the record is incredible.

He wrote: "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life."

The confident rapper recently finished the album and posted a handwritten tracklist on Twitter with the caption: "So happy to be finished with the best album of all time (sic)"

The album, formerly known as Swish, has been a longtime in the works as just a few weeks ago, his sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian revealed Kanye was still struggling to narrow down the list as he had recorded a number of "genuinely terrific songs".

She said: "He has so many songs that we - I act like I'm recording them - that he can't figure out what he wants to put on his album. And they're all genuinely terrific songs."

"He is so passionate. He's like, every bit the meaning of an artist."

And he even asked his wife Kim Kardashian West's sisters, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, for advice.

Khloe added: "He's so into his craft, and just to see him at work and see how much he respects our opinions, all of us sisters, he wants us all in the studio at different times."

Waves is expected to be released on February 11.
