Yeezy season is here again! After two year’s worth of pent up anticipation, Kanye West is set to finally give his fans what they’ve been dying for: new music. Today, West took to Twitter, interrupting his ongoing philosophy book to announce that he’s dropping two new albums this summer, including one with Kid Cudi titled Kids See Ghost. So far, all we know is that’s his solo record is currently comprised of seven songs and will drop on June 1, while his project with Cudi will drop a week later on the 8th. That being said, this is Kanye West we’re talking about, and if we learned anything from the rollout from his last album The Life Of Pablo, this is all subject to change.

Kanye has been telegraphing this project for months, appearing with Cudi both onstage in his hometown of Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom, as well as at a recent gig in Los Angeles. He’s also gone on trips with him to Tokyo, as well as to the mountains of Wyoming, where he invited a whole bevy of some of the biggest names in hip-hop to join him for a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy style rap camp, featuring the likes of G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T, his ever faithful collaborator Mike Dean, and even Drake.
