While Kanye West is enjoying his newly born baby girl with girlfriend Kim Kardashian, fans are enjoying his Yeezus album days early ... because it's leaked online.

Def Jam told TMZ.com that they have dispatched their special "leaks" division to track down the person(s) behind the leak, but admit advanced leaks aren't "uncommon" in the music biz.

The iconic record label is working to track down the source of a leak, as well as to put a stop to any further illicit file sharing. And, say they have a lead on who's behind the leak and plans to take swift punitive action.

Kanye, on the other hand, is said to be "cool as a cucumber," and understands it's almost inevitable for a highly anticipated album to leak, especially with "so many cooks in the kitchen."

Yeezus is due to officially hit retailers June 18th, but the entire album has already hit the Internet.
