Ahead of the release of Kanye West and Kid Cudi's highly-anticipated new album Kids See Ghosts, we’ve gathered everything you need to know to get even more amped-up about the album’s drop.

Kanye West and Kid Cudi have been close collaborators for over a decade, starting in 2008 when West signed Cudi to his G.O.O.D. Music imprint. Cudi played a big part in West's 808s and Heartbreaks, and has worked with him on the past six albums, appearing on tracks like “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1”, “All of the Lights”, and most recently “Ghost Town” on Kanye West's new album ye. Now, they're officially joining forces for an album.

As seen on previous projects, Kid Cudi and Kanye West has worked with some of music’s finest, both on production and lyric composition. For their forthcoming project, many are wondering who’s likely to be a returning collaborator. WIll they bring back the classic sounds of 808s and Heartbreaks? Will pop artist Takashi Murakami be creating the album artwork?

For these details and more, read on for a rundown of everything we know so far about Kid Cudi and Kanye West's upcoming album Kids See Ghosts.

Release Date:

After breaking an extended Twitter silence, Kanye West began tweeting about a slew of releases he was working on for his G.O.O.D. Music family, most notably his own album ye and Pusha-T's DAYTONA. On that fateful day in April, he announced that an album by himself and Kid Cudi will drop June 8.

In addition, just like Kanye West's ye, Kid Cudi and Kanye West's Kids See Ghosts will debut via livestream on the WAV app on Thursday, June 7 at 8pm PST, the same time as the album's Los Angeles listening party.

Album Title:

On that same day in April, Kanye West announced that the album name is Kids See Ghosts, also the name of his collaborative project with Kid Cudi.

Album Artwork:

On June 6, Kid Cudi shared the official album art, created by Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami. Two images were first teased as the potential album cover a few months ago; one depicts animé versions of Kanye West and Kid Cudi.

Tracklist:

In keeping with his strict seven song limit for the slew of G.O.O.D. Music projects he's producing, Kanye West shared the work-in-progress tracklist for Kids See Ghosts, leaving the fourth track blank.

According to West's studio whiteboard, the tracklist is as follows:

1. “Feel the Love” 2. “Kids See Ghosts” 3. “4th Dimension” 4. (left blank) 5. “Cudi Montage” 6. “Devils Watching” 7. “Reborn”

Potential Features/Collaborators:

While the union of Kanye West and Kid Cudi is a noteworthy collaboration in its own right, there doesn't even really need to be any features on Kids See Ghosts for it to be an instant classic.

The only speculation we can really offer is that perhaps some musicians spotted in Jackson Hole back in April could have been working on the Kids See Ghosts album in addition to Kanye West's project. As a refresher, they included the likes of Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Nas, Pi’erre Bourne, and Travis Scott.

Editor's Notes:

Not much to report here, except that we're stoked to hear it, and hope it's a little more exciting than Kanye West's ye, which we found a little bit underwhelming.
