West hasn't announced a new release date for his ninth album, but some of his new songs will be featured in the film, which was shot over the summer in artist James Turrell's Roden Crater in Arizona. The trailer concludes with a Bible verse, Mark 1:15, which says, "In the words of Jesus Christ, 'The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel". The characterize modified into initially due out September 27, and modified into then pushed to September 29, but it never arrived, to fans' consternation and disappointment. The album was due to be released in September according to a post by his wife, Kim but the day came and went with no new music by the controversial star.

This is the first time Chicago-born West has taken his spiritual experience outside of the country.
