Yeezus, we have a leak.

Along with the (conveniently timed?) illegal availability of Kanye West’s album “Yeezus” Friday, the Chicago-raised rapper announced a round of new “projections” slated for locations across the country Saturday. Previously, West had projected video on buildings around the world for his release of “New Slaves,” including Wrigley Field, a Belgian castle and an empty Pennsylvania prison.

The contents of the videos remain a mystery, but West’s website lists the venues where the projections will be playing locally. The first set of projections in May -- for the release of "New Slaves" -- caused snarled traffic in some parts of Chicago, where six-corners in Wicker Park was shut down during the display.

The videos will hit the following Chicago spots Saturday (and early Sunday):

Ryan Field (Evanston) - 9:30 to 10 p.m.

Bridgeview Bank (Bridgeview) - 10:30 to 11 p.m.

Union Station (Loop) - 12:30 to 1 a.m.

Millennium Park - 1:30 to 2 a.m.

Pritzker Park - 11:30 p.m. to 12 a.m.

The Field Museum (Museum Campus) - 12:30 to 1 a.m.

DuSable Museum of African American History (Washington Park) - 9:30 to 10 p.m.

McCormick Place - 11:30 to 12 a.m.

United Center: 1:30 to 2 a.m.
