New Kanye West album due out June 18th?

on May 02, 2013, 10:27am


Earlier today, Kanye West tweeted: “June Eighteen”. What’s it mean? The date of new single, or a new album? Perhaps Kim’s due date?

According to Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson, June 18th is indeed the release date of Kanye’s new album, the follow-up to 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Or, at least the current release date.

Wilson wrote on Twitter: “Chris Atlas at Def Jam confirmed. Kanye West. New album. 6.18.13.”

Update: Wilson has backtracked from his initial tweet: “Clarity: Kanye West album release date has NOT been confirmed. Apologies to Chris Atlas.”

Earlier this week, New York City radio DJ Peter Rosenberg reported that the album was complete, and West’s record label Def Jam recently hosted a listening party. Rosenberg described the album as “dark.”
