Kanye West has named his new album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

The rapper has previously rejecting a number of previous working titles for his fifth album, including 'Good Ass Job', although he was toying with a similar title in July when he released a video clip entitled 'My Dark Twisted Fantasy Trailer'.

However, he tweeted at the beginning of this month to say he was struggling to decide on the final title.

Kanye also clarified some details for the tracklisting, confirming the album will open with a track called 'Dark Fantasy'.

He tweeted: "The first song on the album is called Dark Fantasy produced by The Rza, co-produced by me and No I.D."

He also confirmed previously leaked track 'All Of The Lights' will be his next single from the album; following 'Stronger' earlier this summer and 'Runaway', which was released this week.

He wrote: "I ain't letting no leaks have any affect on my song choices... All of the Lights is the next single but wait till yall here the final!!!!! (sic)"

Kanye had originally cancelled his 'G.O.O.D Friday' release - where he gives away a new track for download every Friday - last week because he was so upset about the leak of the track and another new song 'Lost In The World', however, he later relented and posted his Friday song.

He also tweeted: "Yes, some of the good Fridays will be on the album... Sitting at the graphics house in Paris designing the type face for the album packaging."

It is expected that the versions of Kanye's songs which appear on the final album will be different to the extended, all-star versions he has previously given away as part of the G.O.O.D Fridays series.
