Kanye West has debuted the album cover for Yeezus. While it's not entirely clear how the package will be presented in its retail form, it looks like a clear CD case with a red piece of tape attached with the title scribbled in permanent marker. 

The official version is similar to the one that had been circulating since the artist's girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, posted an Instagram photo teasing the release date of the album, June 18.
