Melbourne: Kanye West is set to release the longest ever music video.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper will release a 40-minute epic for his new Runaway single.

The music video will be longer by 29 seconds, beating the record of the former title-holder, Michael Jackson’s Ghosts, which timed in at 39 minutes and 31 seconds.

West said that the movie will be an ‘Epic piece of art’ based on West’s song debut on September 12 at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, the Herald Sun reported.

The song’s story is inspired by the entertainer’s own story. The story is severely criticized in which a phoenix falls to earth and then burns herself to escape.
