West’s hotly-anticipated eighth album was played to the public for the first time at a listening session in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with the whole event streamed to the world via the WAV app. The album was originally being sold via a merch bundle on his website and due for release today on June 1, however there is currently no official public stream or release. It is expected to arrive at some point on Spotify and Apple Music, but not TIDAL.

Featuring guest spots from Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Ty Dolla $ign and Kid Cudi, the album also references Russell Simmons, Nicki Minaj and his controversial comments about slavery.
