Watch: Arcade Fire’s Win Butler debuted a new Kanye West song last night
Hear a snippet from the Windows 98 DJ set.
The latest preview of ‘SWISH’ has emerged from an unlikely source.
At a DJ set last night, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler debuted a new Kanye West song under his Windows 98 guise. The track is rumoured to be called ‘A Long Time’, and it’s the latest song to be lifted from Kanye’s ‘Yeezus’ follow-up, initially called ‘So Help Me God’.
So far, we’ve heard ‘All Day’, ‘Only One’ and ‘FourFiveSeconds’, all thought to be appearing on the record. His seventh solo album was officially announced last March, but it’s yet to see the light of day. Perhaps it’ll emerge before Glastonbury, hence why he got last year’s Saturday night headliner to debut the song? Start theorising.
Hear a really rough preview of ‘A Long Time’ below.
