Kanye West is teaming up with IMAX for the release of his new documentary Jesus Is King.

The film coincides with the debut of the hip-hop star’s new album by the same name, and will be shown exclusively in IMAX theaters.

Jesus Is King includes songs from West’s album and footage from his “Sunday Service.” The movie was shot  in the summer of 2019, and brings the rapper’s famed service to life in the Roden Crater — artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert, according to IMAX.

“This one-of-a-kind experience features songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with music from his new album Jesus Is King — all presented in the immersive sound and stunning clarity of IMAX,” the company said in a statement.


West held exclusive listening parties for the album in different cities this weekend.

The “Jesus Is King” disc was expected to arrive Friday, but was pushed back to Sunday. It had yet to surface as of this evening.
