Now, let's hit specifics first: when I say Japan, I'm speaking specifically on HMV Japan, who, if you'll remember a few things, have a track record with Kanye. So, you know, don't go pointing your finger at the entire Land of the Rising Sun in reaction to the news to come. All said, we may have the release date for Kanye West's upcoming album.
You'll all recall (I assume) the cryptic "June Eighteenth" tweet that Fishsticks shot out shortly ago, and while there's no definitive evidence to give meaning to the number, HMV Japan may looks to have uncovered some news.
According to their "findings," Kanye is slated to release his new album on June 18. That's essentially it. Why should you even take it into consideration--well, HMV Japan did leak the Cruel Summer tracklist, so they might actually have something here. It's still a while away, so we'll see.
