Kanye West Reveals Couture ‘Watch the Throne’ Cover

Well if this metallic Riccardo Tisci design doesn’t end up being the gaudiest–some would even say hideous–cover of the year, we’re getting all of our interns gold teeth.

You can pre-order Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s long-awaited Watch the Throne LP here. It’s not dropping today, as previously rumored, but we hear it’s now on the way in August, with a “very dark and sexy [sound], like couture hip-hop” (Kanye’s words, not ours) and guest spots from Beyoncé and, err, Bruno Mars.
