The eagle-eyed bloggers over at Hip Hop N More noticed that the Yeezus listings on two Australian retail sites contain a seemingly label-provided description that mentions some of the album’s credited guests. Those listed include the ones we’re already aware of or were suspecting (Skrillex, Travi$ Scott, Chief Keef) and some outright surprises (Tyler, the Creator). And weirdly, the blurb goes out of its way to mention just one half of Daft Punk (Thomas Bangalter).
Yeezus is the 6th studio album by Kanye West. Recorded primarily in Paris, and featuring collaborations with No I.D., RZA, Thomas Bangalter of French electronic duo Daft Punk, Skrillex, Young Chop, Chief Keef, Travis Scott, King L, Tyler, the Creator, Frank Ocean, John Legend, James Blake, and many more.
So, at this point can we conclude that anyone who said they were flying out to Paris to record some Cruel Wintersessions at the end of 2012/beginning of 2013 were unknowingly working on West’s next album?
Happy birthday Yeezus!
