Cast your minds back to two years ago when news of a collaboration between Kanye West and Miley Cyrus landed.

Well, it's finally arrived in the form of a remixed version of West's track "Black Skinhead".

The remix was leaked online and is as odd as you'd expect a team-up of the industry's two most controversial musicians to be.

Despite being seemingly unfinished, the collaboration heavily samples Tears for Fears song "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" which Cyrus intermittently breaks into throughout.

You know you want to listen.

The source of the leak is unconfirmed. Recorded in 2013, rumours suggest that it was held back after Cyrus' infamous twerking antics at the MTV Video Music Awards.

"Black Skinhead" featured on West's album Yeezus; his follow-up SWISH will be released on 11 February.

In the run-up to release, West will be releasing a new track every Friday with the latest - "No More Parties in LA" - featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar.
