Kanye West has returned with new music. “Wash Us in the Blood” is his first new song since last year’s gospel record Jesus is King and his Sunday Service Choir companion album Jesus is Born. It’s the first track from West’s upcoming tenth solo studio album, God’s Country.
In an interview with GQ last year, writer Will Welch described the tracks of God’s Country as “worship songs”. In the interview, West explained that he considered quitting rapping around the time of Jesus is King, but decided not to after one of his pastors said that his son wanted a Kanye West rap album about Jesus.
