Kanye West posted a cryptic tweet at the beginning of May that sparked rumours across the internet. "June Eighteen" was all he wrote, causing speculation that it referred to his baby's due date or the release date of his new album. Making things more confusing, the date was confirmed, only to be backtracked, leaving everyone in the dark.

Now we can fire up the speculation engines once again, as HMV Japan currently shows West's new record scheduled for June 19. Good detectives will note that the time differences between Japan and the US places the album dropping exactly as tweeted by Mr. West. Of course, its all still rumours and guesses at this point until we get a solid confirmation.
