Kanye West and Kid Cudi debuted their new collaborative album "Kids See Ghosts" at a listening party held on Thursday night in Los Angeles, with technical faults delaying the event by nearly three hours.

After dropping Pusha T's DAYTONA a fortnight ago, then following up last week with Ye, Kanye West is back again with his third release in as many weeks.

The album should be released an hour later, but like last week, the Ye album wasn't fully available on all streaming platforms until late Friday morning. Other artists featuring on the album include Mos Def and Ty Dolla $ign.

Update: Kids See Ghosts is now streaming on Spotify. The opening song, for instance, "4th Dimension", has a guest verse from Pusha-T and a chorus of "Feel the Love", which in turn is the name of the fifth track. The same track also samples Shirley Ann Lee's "Someday", which recently also made an appearance on ye track "Ghost Town".

A similar discrepancy pops up on "Cudi Montage", which lists Kurt Cobain as one of the song's co-writers. And that's not even including the guests featured on the actual recording. The official track titles and credits have yet to be confirmed.

On Thursday evening, the duo premiered the album during an exclusive listening party in the hills of Santa Clarita, Calif., which was attended by Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Courtney Love, Kris Jenner, Lil Dicky, Desiigner, and more. Yasiin Bey] 7. Cudi Montage [ft.
