The media stir around Kanye West’s sixth studio album Yeezus continues with the unveiling of the official artwork. This has been a topic of confusion recently, but today, DJ Semtex delivers what fans will reportedly receive when the project releases June 18.

From the looks of it, the CD will come in a clear jewel case with a sticker that includes the tracklist. That’s it.

A photo of the packaging was previewed by A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, who tweeted a flyer revealing West’s plans not to make the LP available for pre-order.

The G.O.O.D. Music head honcho began these rage against the machine-like marketing techniques when he decided to show “New Slaves” on 66 buildings across the world, rather than roll out the track as a traditional single.

Since then, he has evaded all traditional methods for rolling out a major label project.

In other news, fans should also know that West will not enclose tickets for the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in selected albums. This news comes from Nike employee Heidi Burgett.
