Hear ‘Ye, hear ‘Ye. Kanye West has unveiled the official cover for his sixth album Yeezus. A blank CD appears behind a clear plastic case with a piece of red duct tape attached to the side and the title scrawled out in Sharpie.
Kim Kardashian and members of Yeezy’s crew previously tweeted photos of a different cover that appeared to have a melted Jesus piece and the red tape.
When you mouse over the cover on KanyeWest.com, you can hear 13 seconds of a new song reportedly titled “Bound.” (If you can’t access the site, listen to the audio below.)
The packaging was designed by DONDA, Kanye’s creative company, which also did the art for 2 Chainz’ Based on a T.R.U. Story and Lil Wayne’s I Am Not a Human Being II.
There will reportedly be no pre-orders in advance of the June 18 street date. Kanye debuted his new Frank Ocean-assisted song “New Slaves” via projection screens across the world and performed new material for the first time on “SNL” earlier this month.
