#MUSIC: KANYE WEST TO RELEASE “YEEZUS” JUNE 18TH
Yeezus is coming.Based on the advertising blitz that has been building to tonight’s SNL appearance, Kanye West’s follow-up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was expected to be imminent.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper premiered a new song entitled “New Slaves” last night via projections on buildings in 10 cities across the world. The song, about modern day slavery, features vocals from Frank Ocean.
Details surrounding his recording sessions remain scarce, but he has been in the studio with Daft Punk, who programmed drums for the album. “It was very raw: he was rapping—kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter of the French duo told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”
