Kanye West Plans Even More Projections To Take Place This Weekend

Subscribe to Kanye West alerts

Kanye West will finally release Yeezus - his long-awaited follow-up to 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - next week on June 18, but until then the rapper has yet other round of worldwide projections to take place in order to whip up even more anticipation for the release. The rapper revealed a map on his official website featuring an array of new projections set to be taking place over the course of the weekend at various point across the globe.

The rapper did not mention whether any new material will be played when the projections are shown, with his last two experiments only featuring the song 'New Slaves,' which he has since performed live on Saturday Night Live as well as at a handful of live performances. The rapper will show the projections in 22 different locations across North America, including Oakland, Brooklyn, Chicago and Montreal, as well as a number of places across Europe; Dublin, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Brussels, Paris, and Antwerp. He will also air the projections in Johannesberg, Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney.

Earlier this week, the full tracklist for the album, and the vocal collaborators featuring on the tracks, was leaked (possibly intentionally) by Hypetrak, revealing a ten-song list that features appearances from Frank Ocean, Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and Chief Keef. We also know a handful of the people expected to appear on the production credits for the album, with Rick Rubin serving as an executive producer and Daft Punk also offering a hand. Hudson Mohawke, Travi$ Scott, and Arca have also been confirmed as contributors on the album, with Mohawke's electro two-piece with Lunice, TNGHT, revealing on their Twitter this week that their song 'R U Ready' (which was purchased from them by Kanye last year) will appear on 'Blood on the Leaves.' Brit producer Evian Christ has also done production for Yeezus apparently too, on the cut 'I'm In It.'

Yeezus will be released on June 18, with the rapper heading out on tour soon after to promote the album fully. The album itself has apparently leaked online already with copies of the album appearing on file-sharing websites earlier this week.
