Art Basel, the annual international art show held in Miami is going down, and of course the “creative genius” that is Kanye West would be in attendance. During a sit down with architect Jacques Herzog at the Moore Building in Miami’s Design District, Kanye took the time to reveal more details on his next album. Which will be produced by Rick Rubin and Q-Tip.

I think my next album is going to be eight songs. It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn’t made Yeezus, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.

Yeezy also spoke on his background in fine art and the influence behind his music. Check for those comments at Rolling Stone.
