9:05 AM PT -- "Jesus is King" just dropped ... the project is 11 songs and 27 minutes long.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hit the town in NYC as the second deadline for Ye's "Jesus is King" came and went ... but he says he won't sleep til it's out.
The couple attended the 2019 FGI Night of Stars Gala at Cipriani Wall Street Thursday -- earlier in the day, Kanye told fans his album was to drop at midnight -- and Kanye took to Twitter to address the missed release time.
Ye tweeted, "To my fans. Thank you for being loyal & patient. We are specifically fixing mixes on 'Everything We Need' 'Follow God' & 'Water.' We not going to sleep until this album is out!"
You'll remember ... back in August, Kim tweeted out a tracklist and said "Jesus is King" was to drop September 27 ... that date came and went without an album as well.
Yeezy held a massive listening party Wednesday in Los Angeles at The Forum where fans got a screening of his "Jesus is King" IMAX film. He then previewed the album for fans ... that -- nearly 10 hours post-deadline -- still has not come out.
