Kanye West has been pretty busy lately, with his growing family and a fashion line on his plate, so it’s no wonder his next album, SWISH, has been taking some time.

But Yeezus fans aren’t having it.

West hasn’t released a new single in five months, since “All Day” — the most recent single for the Yeezus follow-up — arrived in February. In order to get the ball rolling on releasing his new album, one fan started a petition on the White House’s We the People site on Wednesday (Aug. 12). The site requires the Obama administration to respond to all petitions that have reached over 100,000 signatures within 30 days, according to the terms of participation.
