Tweeting on Wednesday, Joe Coscarelli of The New York Times wrote that "many industry people" have told him "that Jesus Is King is not coming on Friday." West is currently in Wyoming, where he held a public edition of his Sunday Service gathering at the beginning of the week. He's still working on the album, according to Coscarelli's tweet, and "people on the ground in Wyoming [are] trying to make it happen."

The FADER has reached out to Kanye West's representative for more information.
