Yes 3 whole hours, yes album, meaning it will be on vinyl. (The dj in me just shrieked with joy).
From Contact Music:
''Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence.
''He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He's forever recording his opinions on tape.
''He says he's doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum.''
Kanye is said to be excited by the ''groundbreaking'' record and has set his sights on it winning awards....
And for fans who are particularly enamoured by the project, there will be a special extended version of the album available for download.
The source said: ''What's more, he's planning on making 24 hours of his speech recording available to download so fans can listen to his views round the clock.''
