Recent SNL performer Kanye West tweeted this morning that he was in Paris designing the type face for his upcoming fifth album‘s cover. He also revealed another not-so-trivial bit of info—the LP’s title! “The official album title is and always was …….. MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY,” alerted the occasional caps-loving rapper.

West gave a few more tweet-sized tidbits concerning the LP. “The first song on the album is called Dark Fantasy produced my The Rza co-produced by me and No I.D.,” he wrote, before adding, “I ain’t letting no leaks have any affect on my song choices… All of the Lights is the next single but wait till yall here the final!!!!!”

“Runaway,” the single Kanye premiered at the MTV VMAs, was added to iTunes this week. Yeezy tweeted what he called “a super small pic” (he wasn’t kidding) from the Runaway short film, which is premiering in Paris today. The teeny-tiny photo appears to be of wings (possibly of the Phoenix he previously mentioned he, uh, makes his girlfriend).

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is due out on November 22. Are you digging the album’s title?
