Odd Future and Skrillex are both rumoured to feature on the forthcoming new Kanye West album.

Rolling Stone reports that members of Odd Future and producer Skrillex have recently joined West in the studio alongside MC Chief Keef and John Legend.

The magazine previously revealed that Daft Punk have worked on tracks on the new album. The French duo said to Rolling Stone that they have made two songs with the rapper, who was "screaming primally" on his vocal takes.

"It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually," Thomas Bangalter told the US magazine with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo adding: "Kanye doesn't give a fuck."

Kanye West recently posted a mysterious tweet which read: "June Eighteen."

The rapper updated his Twitter account with the message, leading fans to speculate that June 18 could see the rapper release new material.

Just before the tweet it was reported that Kanye has finished recording his new album, the follow-up to 2010's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

Hot 97 revealed that West's label Def Jam recently hosted a listening event for the album, the rapper's sixth solo offering, with DJ Paul Rosenberg saying: "Everyone at the label that listened to the album loved it. I've heard it's dark, but really good."
