HMV Japan has the release date of Kanye West's next album as June 19, which means that his cryptic "June Eighteen" tweet was most likely an album confirmation date. Japan is 12 hours ahead of East Coast time.

Why should we trust HMV Japan? HMV Japan was the website that leaked the correct Cruel Summer tracklist.

While the release date could have very well been based off of his tweet, this may be even more confirmation that new music from Ye is a little more than a month away.

Either way, we're hoping to find out more details this Saturday when Kanye performs at the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
