CORRECTION NOTICE: A previous version of this article stated that SWISH will be Kanye West’s third album. This is incorrect, and was meant to refer to the third iteration of West’s Yeezy fashion line. The correction has been made, and Global News regrets the error.

Anticipation for Kanye West’s next album, titled SWISH, has reached fever pitch, and the investigative dark-webbers of Reddit have uncovered the release date.

Apparently users found a ticket-sale notice on a U.K. website, saying the release is “one of the greatest music events of the year.” SWISH will be released in conjunction with the reveal of Yeezy Season 3 (the musician’s fashion line) on Feb. 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York City during New York Fashion Week.

At the Yeezy Season 2 show in Sept. 2015, West released new music, so this isn’t a new approach — the artist introduced his song Wolves at the time.

Yeezy Season 3 and the SWISH release are scheduled to be broadcast live to multiple theatres around the world. Tickets aren’t available on West’s official page yet, but based on the British site’s notice, chances are there will be a theatre near you showcasing the fashion line/new album. If not, the music will most likely be available online in mid-February.

On Monday, West released the tracklist for SWISH, calling it “the best album of all time.”

West also released one of the songs, titled No More Parties in L.A. (featuring Kendrick Lamar), on Monday.
