Kanye West gave his fans a surprise holiday cheering by dropping a new record titled 'Emmanuel', on Christmas Day.

According to Deadline, the five-song EP is 'inspired by ancient and Latin music'. This is the second consecutive Christmas release for West after last year's gospel-inspired album 'Jesus Is Born', which he recorded with his Sunday Service Choir.

'Emmanuel' has been written and executive produced by West and features the Sunday Service Choir on the entire project.

The record has been described as a 'celebration of the miracle of the birth of Jesus Christ'. The album includes the Christian prayer 'Requiem Aeternam' ('Eternal Rest') and the choral work 'O Magnum Mysterium.'

 The 43-year-old started his Sunday Service events in early 2019 when he began hosting semi-regular gatherings featuring music. The first public Sunday Service performance happened at Coachella on Easter Sunday, 2019.
