With so much star power driving Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, it’s a wonder the project has seen so many delays and so few hard release dates.

It appears, however, that iTunes has finally provided the latter. Maybe.

The digital retailer has revealed that Monday, August 8, is the “expected release” date of the album. With that caveat of “expected” in mind, standard and deluxe editions of the album are available for pre-order.

HipHopDX previously reported that the official release dates were August 1 and August 5 for digital and physical releases, respectively. It is unclear whether the physical release date has been affected.

UPDATE: A trailer has been released for the album, dropping this Monday on iTunes.
