Kanye West has revealed some rather explicit cover art for his new G.O.O.D. Music compilation, which you can see at the top of your screen.

The artwork shows a scantily clad angel who is covering her naked breasts with her hands. It is the second time in recent years West has courted controversy with his artwork after he also featured a nude painting on the front of his 2010 fifth album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

The album itself is titled 'Cruel Summer' and will feature all acts signed to West's label including Mr Hudson, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, Big Sean as well as the rapper himself. It is due for release on September 4, though the tracklisting for the album has yet to be confirmed.

An experimental 30-minute film inspired album, which is also titled 'Cruel Summer' made its debut in Cannes earlier this year. The film, which was projected onto seven screens inside a pyramid-shaped tent, stars Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls in love with a blind Arabian princes.

Earlier this summer, it was claimed that Kanye West is also currently working on a new solo album comprised entirely of animal sounds and noises from the jungle. "He's become so obsessed with roars, barks and jungle noises that he’s experimenting with putting them on a recording," a source told The Sun.
