As well as that Mega.co.nz link, we've also heard it became on private BitTorrent site What.CD. This follows a Swedish retailer revealing a track list, according to MTV News. Kanye has certainly put songs out there by performing on Saturday Night Live and at the Met Gala and setting up projections and listening parties, but he was trying to run a tight ship. The album wasn't going to be available for preorders. Just yesterday BuzzFeed published a post listing the "8 Reasons You Won’t Hear 'Yeezus' Early." Well, now you can, and four days ahead of the June 18 release.
