The blinged-out album cover shows no names or title but is a very elaborate gold design and was reportedly created by Riccardo Tisci, creative director for Givenchy. Song titles reportedly include 'Living So Italian,' 'Illest Motherf---er Alive' and 'Murder to Excellence' while both Bruno Mars and Beyonce guest on the disc.

The hotly anticipated album, according to NME, will be available in two different formats: a 10-track album and a special "deluxe" version which features an additional four bonus tracks, with all formats available via MP3. A shipping date for pre-order customers is Aug. 2.
Production of 'Watch the Throne' began last August with West telling MTV the album would be "very dark and sexy, like couture hip-hop." Earlier this year, the rapper announced via Twitter the first single from the album would be 'H-A-M,' the track, which was produced by Lex Luger, was released in January.
There's no word if the duo will mount a tour in support of the album or if a video for the lead single will be made. We have our fingers crossed for both.
