While it is far from the US star saying that he is planning on releasing any new material, it has sparked rumours that he could be nearing an official launch date.

It was reported by Hot 97 earlier in the week West had recently completed the follow-up to 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy but there is still no word on a title, tracklisting or release date.

The news provider stated that Def Jam, the rapper's record label, recently held a listening event for industry officials.

DJ Paul Rosenberg said: "Everyone at the label that listened to the album loved it. I've heard it's dark, but really good."

West is set to be appear at The Governors Ball Music Festival at Randall's Island in New York alongside the likes of Kings of Leon and Bloc Party on June 7th.
