All those Kanye West tweets were definitely leading up to something.

After a series of deep, philosophical posts this week (breaking his Twitter silence), West revealed Thursday afternoon his new album, a seven-track project, will arrive on June 1.

Additionally, he confirmed his long-rumored joint project with Kid Cudi will arrive the following week, on June 8.

In a conversation published last week by The Hollywood Reporter, Ye said he was writing a philosophy book. But he has since clarified that his insightful tweets are actually the book.

He's believed to have been in Wyoming recording with the likes of Cudi, Travis Scott and Drake, although it's unclear who has actually contributed to the final release. Ye's new record has been one of Variance's 45 Albums to Watch for in 2018.

West's last album was his 2016 record The Life of Pablo.
