The wait is almost over for Kanye West fans who just can’t wait to get their hands on new music. The rapper just revealed when his new album will be dropping and it’s actually sooner than you might think!

It’s been two long years since Kanye West fans have had a new album to sink their teeth into but it won’t be long before they’ll be able to get their hands on the rapper’s eighth studio album.

After months of speculating over whether West would be releasing new material soon, the Life of Pablo artist took to Twitter on Wednesday (April 19) to reveal to fans that he’s got not one, but two separate albums coming down the pipeline.

The first is West’s highly anticipated eighth studio album, the other is a surprise collaboration with Kid Cudi.

“my album is 7 songs,” tweeted West. “June 1st.”

West then followed up with some information on the surprise side project he and Cudi are dropping just one week later.

“me and Cudi album June 8th,” wrote West. “It’s called Kids See Ghost. That’s the name of our group.”

This isn’t the first time that West and Cudi have hit the studio together. The pair share a long collaborative history which dates back to Cudi’s first two records (both of which were released via West’s G.O.O.D. Music label). Cudi’s also been featured on a number of Kanye’s albums.

Even so, it’s interesting to hear that they’re taking their collaborative efforts to the next level and releasing an entire album together under a joint group name.

We’ll be curious to see what Cudi and West cook up in the studio, and we’ll also be curious to see what West has cooked up on his own when his solo album drops at the beginning of June.
