Kanye West to release album made only of animal noises?

US rapper Kanye West is reportedly exploring the idea of making an album using only animal noises.

It is thought that the Lost in the World rapper is considering producing an experimental compilation utilising various sounds from the jungle, having previously experimented with incorporating animal noises during work on his album with Jay-Z Watch the Throne.

A source close to West told The Sun: "Kanye’s telling mates this is his next ingenious plan.

“He’s become so obsessed with roars, barks and jungle noises that he’s experimenting with putting them on a recording."

West is currently nearing the end of his UK tour with Jay-Z, with dates at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena tonight (June 21st) and Birmingham’s LG Arena on June 22nd .

Last year Jay-Z hinted that a second Watch The Throne release could eventually see the light of day, with producer Mike Dean also confirming that the pair are planning to make a second record together.
