Wow ‘Ye, you’re crazy for this one! In advance of his appearance on Saturday Night Live, Kanye West has premiered a new song entitled “New Slaves” accompanied by visual projections on 66 buidlings across the world. The time and locations of the projections — which are of Kanye’s face rapping along to the new song — are posted on KanyeWest.com.
Consequence of Sound has found a video of the full track which you can check out below. Rap Genius already has most of the lyrics up as well but not even those junkies could decipher the extremely unimpressive falsetto section at the end. I’ve said enough, check out the track for yourself below.
We’ll keep you guys posted as a studio version of the track and new details emerge. Kanye West’s follow-up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (which we gave our only perfect 100% score upon release) is expected out later this year and is rumored to feature a plethora of artists including Daft Punk, TNGHT, Chief Keef, Azealia Banks, and Hudson Mohawke. Get ready, Yeezy season has begun.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet.
