Kanye West – “New Slaves”
Tonight Kanye West premiered “New Slaves,” the first single from his forthcoming LP, by projecting a video on buildings across the world. His site includes a map of times and locations for those projections, 66 in all. It’s the same song Hudson Mohawke spun in Poland recently. Earlier this month, the rapper previewed new material at the Met Ball and Adult Swim’s upfront, but decent recordings from those events have been scarce. Tonight’s launch was better documented. Watch the full video (as it appeared on a building in Brooklyn) and a Vine below.
Kanye performs on the season finale of Saturday Night Live this weekend. His album is reportedly out 6/18.
