EDM News: Kanye West Confirms Daft Punk Production on Three Tracks for Yeezus, What About Skrillex?

Last night in New York City's Meatpacking district, Kanye West premiered his new album, Yeezus, to a mixed crowd of fans, celebrities, and critics on the loading dock of Milk Studios. Among his usual stream of consciousness babble, West announced that Daft Punk has worked on "three or four tracks", including "Black Skinheads", "On Site", and "I Am A God". West also announced that master crafter Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Johnny Cash) was brought on as the exectutive producer (a la Jay-Z's Black Album). Additional guests spots include Chief Keef, King Louie, Kid Cudi, and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon. No official words on the rumored Skrillex and Hudson Mohawk work on the album.

Yeezus, named after Kanye's self-proclaimed "God name", is set to be released June 18th, with no pre-sale or single releases planned.
