Meme-ready rapper turned entrepreneur Mr Kanye West (sort of) surprised those lucky enough to be attending the launch of his latest fashion enterprise, the Yeezy 750 Boost sneakers, by unveiling a new track entitled ‘Wolves’ at the party.
Featuring ‘Chandelier’ star Sia alongside Vic Mensa, the song is a far less abrasive effort than much of his last record ‘Yeezus’, instead aping the kind of vocoder-led R’n’B of 2008’s ‘808s and Heartbreak’. An accompanying photo projected onto the wall of the party states “This is track #1 on Kanye West’s new album”. So that’s exciting.
A sneakily filmed recording of the track unveiling found its way online within minutes – listen to a slightly fuzzy recording of ‘Wolves’ below.
Update: There’s now a far clearer version online. Check it out at around 8:15 in the video below.
Ye teased new track ‘Always’ in London.
The track is lifted from his tenth studio album ‘DONDA’.
And it’s out on 22nd February.
It’ll follow the release of ‘DONDA’ in August.
