Skrillex has said that he will be featuring on Kanye West's new album.

The dubstep producer, who is currently working on his own debut full-length album, has said that he and the '808s & Heartbreaks' rapper collaborated earlier this year, and, from what he understands, it will be the first track on West's new album.

He told The Daily Beast:

I did some music with Kanye and from what I know, it's actually going to be the first song on his new album.

The producer didn't specify whether the track would feature on West's forthcoming compilation 'Cruel Summer' or on his upcoming sixth studio album, but it is far more likely to be the latter as 'Cruel Summer' is meant to serve as a showcase for the artists signed to West's record label GOOD Music.

Earlier this week, Kanye West 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 on Tuesday (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.

'Cruel Summer' is due for release on September 4.
