Background[edit | edit source]
In September 2018, West announced that his ninth studio album Yandhi would be releasing later in the month. West later postponed the date to November 2018 in order to record in Uganda. The album was postponed a second time in November with no set release date.
On the first Sunday of 2019, West began the first "Sunday Service" rehearsal, where he performed gospel iterations of his discography and other songs with choir group The Samples and frequent collaborators such as Tony Williams, Francis and the Lights, and Ant Clemons. During Sunday Service, several songs from Yandhi have been performed.
On March 31, 2019, West announced a Sunday Service performance for Easter would take place at Coachella. The first public Sunday Service performance will occur at Coachella for Easter on April 21, 2019, with a connection to Yandhi expected. Kid Cudi brought out West to perform numerous tracks live at Coachella and West abstained from addressing the crowd at all, since this was likely being saved for his Sunday Service at the festival.
