Rapper Kanye West is working with producer Rick Rubin on a new album, which is a follow-up to his 2013's record Yeezus.

Rubin has announced that he has been "looking at vocal ideas" for the 37-year-old star's follow-up collection, reported Contactmusic.

"Kanye West is coming in and we're starting looking at vocal ideas for things for the next album," the producer said.



Rubin, 51, then recalls the time he spent with the Power hitmaker while they were putting together Yeezus last year.

"He originally came over and said 'I wanna come play you my new album' and I thought we'd be listening to a finished album.

"Then we listened to about three hours of music, most of which didn't have vocals, and at the end I was like, 'Wow, so what's it gonna be?' I'm thinking it's a year away and he was like, 'Well, I'm putting it out in like 5-6 weeks.' It was just a funny conversation because it was completely normal to him, it's just the way he works."
