Kanye West will be tour his new album 'Yeezus' later this year, his co-producer Mike Dean has confirmed.

Mike Dean announced Kanye’s plans to tour the album last night as part of a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat with fans, whilst batting off questions enquiring after Kanye’s baby and Rick Rubin’s couch. He also confirmed that he would be accompanying Kanye onstage as a backing performer. When user Defrio29 asked if there would be a Yeezus tour, Dean simply replied "Yes and yes", before adding that “‘Hold My Liquor’ is going to be great to play live.”

'Yeezus' debuted at the Number One slot in 31 countries after its release on June 18 despite being leaked online four days earlier. The announcement follows the recent birth of West and his partner Kim Kardashian’s daughter, who was born at Cedars-Sinai hospital on June 15. Reports that the baby has been named Kaidence Donda West have yet to be confirmed.

'Yeezus' was officially released on Tuesday (June 18) following last week's leak. The rapper's sixth studio album features production work from Daft Punk whilst 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'. Kid Cudi guests on 'Guilt Trip' and 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.
