Last October, Jay-Z and Kanye West announced that they had teamed up for a full-length album, Watch the Throne, which as we previously reported was made available for pre-order earlier this month, and previewed to a handful of reporters at a hotel in the Soho district of New York. But the album’s release date remained a mystery. Until now!
The first single from the collaboration, “H*A*M.,” was released in January and was well received by fans and music editors alike. However, with no leaks streaming out into the internets yet, it was the only preview of Watch the Throne besides the private listening party that occured earlier this month. The album should be a great one, especially considering that both Jay-Z and Kanye West worked on their parts together, for the whole process. They recorded in such places as England, Paris, Australia, New York and Los Angeles, going wherever their schedules would allow.
Not lucky enough to have been invited to the listening party? Public audiences will have to wait just a little more, but no too much longer, with the date for the highly anticipated collaboration’s digital form releasing on August 1st, and the physical copy on August 5th.
Until then, audiences will have to rely on Watch the Throne’s track-listing to keep them satisfied until then!
