Kanye West reveals album release date?
While Kanye has mentioned a sixth album being in the works, the rapper hasn’t made any official statements. Today, West took to Twitter and posted an updated simply stating “June Eighteen”. What actually will happen on this date we can only speculate – A possible single reveal, or an actual album release, who knows.
And feature Daft Punk.
It’s been said that the album has already been completed, and according to Hot 97 there’s even been a listening party. Apparently West’s label Def Jam recently hosted a listening event for the album, the rapper’s sixth solo offering, with DJ Paul Rosenberg saying: “Everyone at the label that listened to the album loved it. I’ve heard it’s dark, but really good.”
So it’s going to be a dark album. And feature Daft Punk, since they recently mentioned recording two songs with Kanye to The Rolling Stone. “It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter told the US magazine with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo adding. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”
