Kanye West and Jay-Z strike gold on the metallic cover of Watch the Throne designed by Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci. The long-awaited collaborative project from the hip-hop kings has been plagued by rumors, but the artwork was officially unveiled on WatchtheThrone.com on Sunday night along with a pre-order link.
Two versions will be available, a standard and a deluxe, but the release date is still unknown. Ryan Seacrest mentioned on his radio show that a new single, heavily rumored to be called “Lift Off” featuring Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, would arrive by July 11 with the album in August. While there are tracklistings floating around, nothing has been confirmed by Def Jam at this time.
