Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.
Kanye West’s new album “Yeezus” apparently leaked online Friday, four days before it officially goes on sale Tuesday, June 18. It’s a surprise, given the high security West has put around his production and the fact that he was able to keep the highly anticipated album he made with Jay-Z, “Watch The Throne,” from leaking.
West makes headlines like they were pancakes, but you might have caught some of the publicity for the new album recently, including new song “New Slaves” being projected on the W Hotel in Hollywood last month, along with other projections around the world.

West also announced Friday on Twitter that more new music would be shown at different projection locations. “New Slaves” was part of West’s set on “Saturday Night Live” last month, along with “Black Skinhead.”
He deleted all of his tweets as he promoted the new album, with only four tweets currently on the account all there to promote “Yeezus.”
West has played the details of this album relatively close to the vest, but there is a track listing floating around online, which lists a lot of production work from “Get Lucky” hitmakers Daft Punk:
