The graphic used primarily on the merch, which plays off the actual Kids See Ghosts album cover, shows an alternate color edition of Murakami's Ukiyo-e style woodblock print image.
Kids See Ghosts is expected out on Friday and is to debut this week at a listening party in Los Angeles, according to a tweet from Kid Cudi's manager, Dennis Cummings. As you've probably noticed by now, the album appears to have been pushed to Tidal, Apple Music, and other services with mismatched track titles. It started with Pusha T's widely-acclaimed "Daytona" album that was released two Fridays ago followed by Kanye's "Ye" which dropped last week Friday and now it's the Kid Cudi and Kanye West joint album titled "Kids See Ghost". "Cudi Montage" 4. "Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)" 5. The same track also samples Shirley Ann Lee's "Someday", which recently also made an appearance on ye track "Ghost Town". Third track "4th Dimension", meanwhile, credits Louis Prima for the use of his old-timey Christmas tune "What Will Santa Claus Say".
In true West fashion, the listening session was shrouded in mystery up until the day of the event.
By contrast, the delay for the listening party of "Kids See Ghosts" extended to its release. An early highlight is the Kurt Cobain-sampling "Cudi Montage", which sends the album out on the sort of refreshingly vulnerable note many have argued was largely absent from Ye.
