Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music project, Cruel Summer, is slated for an Sept. 4 release on Def Jam, and we were recently given a look at the album’s artwork. Like the cover of Watch the Throne, Cruel Summer’s art is ornate and symmetrical in nature. The album will feature a number of notable artists including John Legend, Pusha T, Kid Cudi and Mos Def.
Cruel Summer was also the title of the short film/long music video Kanye premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Have a look at the artwork to the right. Below you can check out the video for “Mercy,” the album’s first single featuring Pusha T, 2 Chainz and Big Sean. Below that you can listen to “New God Flow,” the latest single which also features Pusha T.
