After streaming all of his new album The Life Of Pablo at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Thursday afternoon (Feb. 11), Kanye West revealed some footage from his upcoming video game Only One, which will chronicle his late mother’s ascent through Heaven; Donda West passed away in 2007.

The video game is “coming soon,” according to a teaser trailer, which featured animated characters flying through the clouds and approach the pearly gates. “Only One” is a song West released in early 2015 with Paul McCartney, but will not be featured on his new album.

West discussed the game in a radio interview last February (via Gizmodo):

“I'm working on a video game for [my song] 'Only One,' and the idea is it's my mother going through the gates of heaven. And you gotta bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light. We've been working on it for like six months.”

The Life Of Pablo features guest spots from Chance The Rapper, Frank Ocean, Rihanna and more. Click here to read the complete guide to the album.
