Published May 19, 2013Yesterday was a big one for Kanye West after word got out that his new album would be called Yeezus before performing two songs on Saturday Night Live. Now, he's shared the album's artwork.
Far from a hi-res version of the cover, the above image was shared on Kanye's site along with a pre-order link, though both were quickly removed. The jewel case cover is packed with black and gold, and what looks like a melted statue, while it's held shut with red tape.
Seemingly confirming both the album cover and release date, Yeezy's celeb girlfriend Kim Kardashian shared an image of the CD on her Instagram, confirming the June 18 release date.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
UPDATE: The album is now available to pre-order on iTunes.
