Kanye West album details leaked, taken down
Details of Kanye West's sixth studio album, Yeezus, surfaced over the weekend - and then promptly vanished.
Pitchfork reports that a pre-order page for the album appeared on iTunes but was later taken down. The page confirmed the title Yeezus - combination of West's nickname 'Yeezy' and 'Jesus' - and the June 18 release date.
Although West has not confirmed any details of the release, he has previously tweeted the words "June Eighteen," and his co-manager Don C and girlfriend Kim Kardashian have posted photos of the album artwork (pictured) on their Instagram feeds.
The pre-order page listed untitled 14 tracks, all of which had a length of 3:02 save for the last one, which clocked in one second shorter at 3:01.
West kicked off a promotional blitz on Friday night (May 17) by debuting the video for the song "New Slaves" on 66 buildings around the world, including four in Toronto. The next night he performed "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" on Saturday Night Live.
