(CBS/AP) Finally, the much-anticipated and oft-delayed Kanye West and Jay-Z collaboration "Watch the Throne" is out. The album, in its standard and deluxe forms, was available on iTunes starting at midnight.

Last week news broke that West and Jay-Z had delayed the start of their tour. The first date is now scheduled for Oct. 29 in Atlanta (click here for more dates).

"Watch the Throne" features many all-star collaborations, including with RZA, Q-Tip and Beyonce, who sings on the single "Lift Off."

Meanwhile over the weekend, West, known for his outbursts, went off on a rant at the Big Chill music festival in England.

In the middle of a Saturday night set, the 34-year-old rapper complained about being misunderstood and underappreciated.

"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm (expletive) insane, like I'm Hitler," he said. "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did."

West received light boos from the crowd as a result.
