The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember. So people wanted to know every songs lyrics and started searching for them everywhere. The demand raised and soon lyrics for each and every song were distributed trough all the media.
Karaoke machines now digitally show the lyrics of every song that plays. Videos with lyrics included actually gain more viewers than the original and official song videos. Many kinds of media for distributing lyrics appear and also millions of websites for distributing lyrics.
The latest gadgets can not be imagined without the ability for distributing lyrics, so now where ever you listen to music you also have the ability to search for the lyrics, read them, and actually be able to sing the song without any mistakes in pronunciation the words or understanding random parts of each song.
The lyrics phenomena is everywhere and it will be here for a long time. People are becoming more and more curious about what's the song about, and not just listening to the melody. This improves the music development quality and helps people enjoy the progress of creating and listening to music.

Kanye West has been through a lot in the last few years since he released his more mainstream hits like “Gold Digger” and “Touch the Sky.” His mother Donda died due to complications from plastic surgery, he’s had famous “what was he thinking?” moments (just think of poor Taylor Swift’s mortified face when he interrupted her acceptance speech) and now he’s dating Kim Kardashian and has been named by her husband as a potential reason for their split.
There’s a lot of inspiration there, so the fact that Kanye West is working on a new album is a good thing. It will be interesting to see if any of this translates into something that people will actually enjoy and relate to.
West’s last album was My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which was released about 18 months ago and this upcoming project is not to be confused with his GOOD Music compilation, Cruel Summer.
No I.D. (yes, that is a name), the Def Jam Executive VP who is also a producer revealed that he has already started working on the album but clarified "I'm not working on ['Cruel Summer']. I'm working on his album."
When commenting on what flavor we can expect from this album, No I.D. simply said: "He hasn't missed yet. It's what you expect, and everything you don't expect. It's gonna be great."
If you are waiting for Cruel Summer, it drops on August 7, 2012 but there is no release date yet for this untitled project.
"Kanye West Is Working on a New Album" was originally published to Kanye West on KOvideo
