Following a pair of presentations at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Kanye West has now announced a third listening event for his yet-to-be-released album DONDA.

Today on Instagram, West announced plans to move out of the Atlanta stadium ahead of bringing DONDA to his home state of Chicago, with a new listening event set for August 26 at Soldier Field. Tickets for the newly announced go on sale August 20.

West first threw a public listening event for DONDA in Atlanta on July 22, and while the album was slated to arrive July 23, it ultimately was not released.

West then pushed the album's release date to align with a second livestreamed listening event held in Atlanta on August 6, at which he showcased a much more complete-sounding album. At that time, it was reported that he was living in Mercedes-Benz stadium to finish work on the release, but DONDA did not appear.

At present, an iTunes pre-order page for DONDA shows a release date of August 27.
