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.

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.

In other news, Kanye West became a father for the first time yesterday (June 15), as his partner Kim Kardashian gave birth to their baby daughter. West was reportedly by his partner's side in the delivery room the whole time, according to TMZ. The couple have yet to name the baby.
