Producer Mike Dean has confirmed that there will be a Watch the Throne 2 album from Jay-Z and Kanye West in a recent interview with Quiet Lunch

"I'm working on the G.O.O.D. Music album, of course," said Dean, "and Watch The Throne 2 – it's not started yet, but it's coming."

A multi-Grammy winning producer, Dean co-produced Watch the Throne and added production to West's albums Graduation and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Rumors of a Throne sequel have been circulating for a while, with Jay-Z hinting last December that the follow-up could arrive in 2012. 

"We – I say 'we' because I'm in Throne mode – we're in a great place creatively," Jay told MTV News at the time. "You might see a Jay, then Kanye, and a Throne album next year . . . We really found our zone." 

As for the G.O.O.D. Music album, it's still expected to drop sometime this year, and music from it can reportedly be heard in West's new short film/art instillation, Cruel Summer, which premiered at Cannes this week
