Fresh off debuting a new music video via 66 guerrilla style projections shown on buildings all around the world, Kanye West has some more news to share with the music-listening community. West's sixth studio album will be released June 18 (as previously hinted in West's tweet) and be titled "Yeezus."

Rap-Up confirmed the news on Saturday. West is due to perform two songs on "Saturday Night Live," and sources tell The Huffington Post that he'll debut a previously unheard song as part of the show.

This isn't the first time "Yeezus" has been tossed around. Kid Cudi (formerly signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music label) coined the term well over a year ago (a tip of the hat to Complex for the find). West also famously posed for a Rolling Stone cover wearing a crown of thorns.
