Kanye West's new album 'Yeezus' has leaked online.

The rapper's sixth studio album made its way onto numerous torrent sites earlier today (June 14). The tracklisting and contributors info was also revealed for the ten track LP, showing that Daft Punk produced the tracks 'On Sight' and 'Black Skinhead' as well as helping out on 'Send It Up'.

Elsewhere, the song 'New Slaves' features Frank Ocean, 'Hold My Liquor' features Chief Keef and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, the latter of whom co-wrote 'I'm In It', which features rapper Travis Scott. Kid Cudi guests on 'Guilt Trip' whilst the John Legend-penned 'Bound 2' features former Gap Band vocalist Charlie Wilson and 'Send It Up' sees a guest spot from Chicago rapper King L. Scroll down for a full tracklisting.

Rick Rubin was drafted in at the last minute to executive produce 'Yeezus', which is officially out on June 18. Describing himself as a "minimalist in a rapper's body", West explained that he brought in super-producer Rubin (Johnny Cash, Run DMC, Red Hot Chili Peppers) to "bring all those vibes" to the album. "I'm still just a kid learning about minimalism, and he's a master of it," West explained.

"It's just really such a blessing, to be able to work with him. I want to say that after working with Rick, it humbled me to realise why I hadn't – even though I produced 'Watch The Throne'; even though I produced 'Dark Fantasy' – why I hadn't won Album of the Year [at the Grammys] yet."

West premiered 'Yeezus' in full at an exclusive listening session in New York on Monday night (June 10) attended by Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Timbaland and Busta Rhymes. NME was also present at the event. Click here for our track-by-track first listen review of the album.
