Kanye West is basically Santa, as he’s just gone and delivered a Christmas gift to his fans in the form of a brand new album.

The 42-year-old has teamed up with his Sunday Service to put together a 19-track gospel record.

And to adhere to the festive theme, the father-of-four titled his new project, Jesus Is Born.

Songs on the new release include Count Your Blessings, Excellent, Balm in Gilead, Ultralight Beam, Weak and That’s How the Good Lord Works.

Taking to Twitter, the rapper announced the album by sharing the cover, and it’s safe to say his followers went into meltdown.

‘THIS CHOIR IS AMAZING,’ one wrote while another added: ‘THANK YOU, YE! MERRY CHRISTMAS, WE LOVE YOU.’

Someone else said: ‘BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER THANK YOU.’

But while he was gifting music to his fandom, the Gold Digger hitmaker and his wife Kim Kardashian splashed out on a rather controversial present for his six-year-old daughter North.

Taking to Instagram, the proud parents revealed they’d gone and bought the child a worn jacket by Michael Jackson himself.

The couple shelled out $65,625 (£50,600) at auction back in October to buy the garment, which was worn by the Bad singer at Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday as well as the Cannes Film Festival in 1997.

Chatting to her fans, the proud mum said: ‘For Christmas, Kanye and I gave North this jacket, and this was Michael Jackson’s jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor.

‘North is a really big Michael Jackson fan, and we knew she would love this.’

Kim added: ‘So we won this on an auction for Northy for Christmas and we had it like, tacked up so she can wear it.’

CNN reported that Jackson’s jacket had been sold, although the winner was not named, and it was revealed that the estimated sell was initially only between $10,000 (£7,700) and $20,000 (£15,400).

The report read: ‘Michael Jackson’s custom velvet jacket that he wore to Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party and the premiere of his Ghosts film was estimated to sell for between $10,000 and $20,000.

‘The winning bid was $65,625.’
