Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ Album Art, Unveiled

Kanye West‘s album art for Yeezus has been revealed. Shortly before West took the Saturday Night Live stage, Kim Kardashian and West’s manager posted a photo of the cover, placed by the sneakers that West wore on stage (above).

While West performed new songs “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” to a quick-cutting slideshow of sales tags — shout out to Savers — the Yeezus cover art features an indecipherable bronze mass. Maybe it’s a bust being melted apart. (Crane your head to the right.) Maybe it alludes to Watch the Throne. (Likely, no?) Maybe it’s a Season 1 Game of Thrones reference. (Okay, maybe not.)

Given Yeezus‘s June 18 release date, West won’t likely leave us wondering for long.
