Kanye West's highly anticipated G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer finally has a planned street date of August 7th, according to an interview Pusha-T gave on Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex last night.

The album shares a title with West's recent "seven-screen experience" film/art installation starring Kid Cudi, which debuted recently at Cannes. The film reportedly featured music that would appear on the album of the same name, and it apparently had people chair-dancing during the premiere. Frank Ocean, Jay Electronica, Big Sean and more are all set to appear on the album.

West, Pusha-T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz recently assembled for the video for "Mercy," the first taste of the record, which was released back in April. In the meantime, most of the G.O.O.D. Music members continue to work on their own projects: West recently released "Way Too Cold" (originally "Theraflu"), which will appear on DJ Khaled's upcoming record, and Pusha-T is prepping for the release of his next project, which will include "Exodus 23:1." Pusha-T also told Flex during their chat that fans can expect a new Clipse album in the future.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
