Kanye West has announced the worldwide screening locations for his Waves album premiere. The rapper will debut his seventh LP February 11th at Madison Square Garden, with the event streamed at theaters in over 20 countries. Tickets details are available at West’s official website

West tweeted the ticket link and a poster for the event, writing, “SEASON 3 / WAVES / MADISON SQUARE GARDEN / INTERNATIONAL CINEMAS.” Yeezy Season 1 and 2, both showcases for West’s fashion line, were streamed in theaters and debuted new music: The first included the premiere of “Wolves” (featuring Sia and Vic Mensa) and the second featured “Fade” (featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone). 

Season 3 tickets are available for 25 countries, though not in the U.S. as of this writing. The event will feature a performance from Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft, who collaborated with the rapper on his first two Yeezy Season events.

West will release Waves on February 11th, the day of the premiere event. He detailed the track list last week on Twitter, with the titles scribbled on a notepad. “So happy to be finished with the best album of all time,” he boasted. Previously released tracks include “Wolves,” “Fade,” “Real Friends” and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “No More Parties in L.A.”

As days pass, the notepad continues to swell with signatures – including A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt – suggesting possible collaborators on the new LP. West has also been photographed in the recording studio with Outkast’s André 3000 and 2 Chainz, among others. “This album is actually a gospel album,” West recently tweeted.
