In perhaps the shortest press release ever, Kanye West has announced his next album. Through a series of curt tweets posted Thursday afternoon, the rapper revealed he will drop a new album June 1, followed by a collaborative album with Kid Cudi on June 8. The former will apparently only sport seven songs, an all-time minimum for the typically prolific artist.

This will be West’s first album in two years, following The Life of Pablo in 2016. His second-shortest album, Yeezus, featured 10 songs.
