Watch Kanye Do “New Slaves” A Cappella In Switzerland
Kanye West’s new album Yeezus is now five days away from release, and we still haven’t heard a full studio version of any of its songs, which is nuts. But last night, Kanye held a listening session for the album in Basel, Switzerland, and he took the opportunity to perform a furious, passionate a capella rendition of “New Slaves.” Someone in the crowd caught video of that performance and of Kanye playing the Daft Punk collab “On Sight” from a laptop. Also last night, on Kanye’s website, Kanye posted a 30-second video of him performing a bit of “I Am A God” in a room with Rick Rubin, the album’s executive producer. You can watch both of those videos below.
Yeezus is out 6/18 on Def Jam.
