Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir released a surprise new EP titled Emmanuel
on Christmas Day, following the group’s previous holiday release Jesus Is Born
, which dropped on Christmas Day 2019. The 12-minute, five-track EP consists entirely of a capella choral arrangements, mostly in Latin. West is credited as the sole writer and producer on all of the songs.
West embraced the Christian music genre with Jesus Is King
after forming the Sunday Service group in 2019, and Jesus Is Born
followed in that vein with a gospel sound. Earlier this year, West released the singles “Wash Us in the Blood” and “Nah Nah Nah,” returning to more of a hip-hop style.
is now available on all streaming platforms.
