Two weeks ago, a mysterious Twitter account surfaced promising “Kanye West‘s New Testament,” the contents of which were unknown at the time. Was it a new song? New album? Something else? No one was sure.

Later, the account set “New Testament” for a June 10 release date, accompanying its tweet with a poster, like one might do when advertising an upcoming film or live performance. As it turns out, the movie poster feel wasn’t a fluke, because Kanye West’s New Testament is a just that: a movie. Kind of.

Released last night on YouTube, Kanye West’s New Testament is a 34-minute documentary of sorts, though what it’s documenting isn’t exactly a visual experience. The video stitches together West quotes from over the years, most of them more recent, with footage of everything from Roman statues to feats of strength.

Set to orchestral scores, the video features soundbites of interviews on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with Sway and even 97.1 AMP, a station.
