Kanye West is finally working on the follow-up to G.O.O.D. Music's 2012 compilation, Cruel Summer, the sequel being titled Cruel Winter.

During an interview with Big Boy's Neighborhood, the rap star revealed the news about the upcoming album, before debuting a new cut called "Champions", featuring Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Yo Gotti, Desiigner, Big Sean and Quavo.

"Sometimes you have snippets, ideas, beats," Kanye told Big Boy during the interview. "You got like a solid seven, eight songs that we know is gonna make the album and the others ones [are like] a beat from Mike WiLL [Made-It] or Travis [Scott] just brought three songs through... We sit there and we work together on our stuff. I look at it as we on the same team."

Although "Champions" just dropped, Ye is working on a massive remix, featuring every artist on G.O.O.D. Music, which he says will be 12 to 15 minutes long.

Currently, there's no release date for Cruel Winter.
