Kanye West took his daughter North West to the studio where he is working on his new LP.

The rapper was pictured with his and his wife Kim Kardashian's child as he preps the follow-up to last year's 'Yeezus'. The photo was posted yesterday (August 4) on Instagram by teamkanyedaily and is captioned: "Kanye & North in The Studio #BringYourDaughterToWorkDay".



Last month West revealed details of his forthcoming album, saying he already has most of the first single finished. He explained that he's recorded a new song similar to his 2012 Jay Z collaboration 'Niggas In Paris' that could be played in a club, saying it's "so good, the album has to be balanced against it".

"For the new album, one new thing could change everything. I had an idea of the way I wanted to do the album," he told GQ. "And then I got a new song that's so good that the album has to be balanced against it. This song is a song that can be in the club like 'Don't Like' or 'Niggas In Paris'. Whereas before I was working on the album and I had these beautiful songs, they were just more songs. They weren't saying, 'OK, tuck your whole summer in.' They were just saying, 'Hey, I'm a great musician, I make these beautiful songs, and they have all this meaning, and nobody can make anything that means this much.'"

West added that he originally wanted to release the album in June, but now hopes to see it come out by the end of the year at the latest.

"I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while. I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like ‘Yeezus’, and just kill it for the summer. But then I'm like, I have to work on Adidas and be with my child."
