Wed 6th Jul, 2011 Newsin
This week we were teased that Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne would be dropped out of the blue. Sadly, there’s no sign of an album but fans can now pre-order the deluxe and standard editions (CD + MP3) via the official watchthethrone.com.
In a comment to Interview Magazine, Kanye describes the record as “very dark and sexy – like couture hip-hop.” The album art is just as posh, having been designed by Riccardo Tisci of exclusive French brand Givenchy. Be dazzled by it below.
Speculation has hinted at guest vocals from Beyoncé and Bruno Mars. Production is said to feature Lex Luger, Swizz Beats and No ID as well as beats from Kanye and Jay-Z.
In an interview with MTV, Kanye protegee CyHi the Prynce let slip that the album was done and that “it’s going to be ready for you guys soon.” No official date has been announced.
