While most students will begin their 2007/08 year of schooling in September, Kanye West is targeting the month for his “Graduation,” which is the title of his third album for Def Jam records.
So far, a snippet of the song “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” featuring Coldplay’s Chris Martin, has found its way onto the Internet. The DJ Toomp-produced track features the lyrics: "I had a dream I could buy my way to heaven / When I woke I spent that on a necklace / I told God I'd be back in a second / Man, it's so hard not to act reckless."
Chris Martin also appears on the title track to “Graduation.” Producer/multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion, who played a key role on West’s 2005 album "Late Registration," will also contribute to the new project.
West has a number of scheduled concert dates this summer, beginning July 2 in Manchester, England, and including a July 7 set at Live Earth in East Rutherford, N.J., a July 14 stop at the Cisco Systems Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario, and an Aug. 18-19 booking at the U.K.'s V Festival.
