New Kanye West LP Due Out In Decemeber

A release date (December 16) and title (808's & Heartbreak) for Kanye West's fourth record was revealed on such online retailers as Amazon and Target yesterday. While Def Jam hasn't confirmed any details for the rumored disc yet, West did post an MP3 and artwork for the song "Love Lockdown" Tuesday night. (He performed the dark, R&B-leaning track at MTV's Video Music Awards earlier this week.)
In a recent interview with MTV News, T-Pain said he's worked with West over the last few months. "He'll call me to his room; I'll do a hook for him," T-Pain explained. "I'll go back down, probably make a couple beats. I'll call him down: 'Yo, do a verse for me real quick.' He'll go back up; he'll make something, call me back up."
Given the T-Pain-ish vibe of "Love Lockdown," it's no surprise that the singer has been hanging out with West lately. His involvement in the rapper's new project is unknown, however.
