Kanye West has said that he has written a new track titled 'Perfect Bitch' and has revealed that it is inspired by his new girlfriend Kim Kardashian.

The rapper took to Twitter yesterday (August 7) to tell the world about the track, writing: "I wrote the song 'Perfect Bitch' about Kim".

The track contains a sample from German composer Carl Orff's 1937 composition 'Carmina Burana', which Nas has previously lifted for his single 'Hate Me Now'.

West debuted the track along with a clutch of others during a DJ set at New York's PH-D Rooftop Lounge on Saturday (August 4). There is no word on whether the track is slated to appear on West's new solo album, which is due later this year.

West's next release will be the GOOD Music compilation, which is titled 'Cruel Summer' and will feature 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 princess.
