Cudi took to Twitter to share that the album cover was done by none other than Takashi Murakami.

It's not the first time Murakami and Kanye have linked up for an album cover. The Japanese artist did the artwork for Kanye's album Graduation and also directed the music video for Ye’s song "Good Morning."
Back in April, Kanye tweeted out a different image, captioning it "Murakami vibes."

Then, in May, Kanye posted a video of him making a beat. In the background of said video, you can see the tentative tracklist for the Kids See Ghosts project. Peep it below.
Kids See Ghosts is expected to drop this Friday, June 8 and follows the release of Kanye's eighth studio album Ye and Pusha-T's third solo studio album DAYTONA. A listening party for Kids See Ghosts is reportedly going to be happening in Los Angeles.
Good luck on getting invited.
