Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s collaborative album Kids See Ghosts is finally here. It’s the third album in the string of the five albums that Kanye West recently produced in Wyoming, and West and Cudi hosted a listening party in Los Angeles last night. But last week, West’s alum Ye didn’t show up on streaming services until partway through Friday morning, and the same thing happened with Kids See Ghosts today.
As with Ye, West and Cudi livestreamed last night’s listening party on the WAV app. The app had technical glitches, though, so the listening party didn’t even start until close to 2AM eastern. And, as Billboard reports, while West and his friends once again played the album around a campfire, many of the guests at the party had the speakers posted away from them, with security keeping them away, so they couldn’t hear it.
Among those invited guests bussed in from Hollywood were Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson, Courtney Love, Lil Dicky, Lena Waithe, YG, iLoveMakonnen, Desiigner, Pete Wentz, Travis Barker, Lizzo, Joshua Jackson, and Zane Lowe. Barbecue and Hennessy were served.
Like Ye and Pusha-T’s Daytona, Kids See Ghosts is seven songs long. The first song samples Louis Prima’s “What Will Santa Claus Say,” while another song is built around a prominent sample of Kurt Cobain’s solo song “Burn The Rain,” from the soundtrack of the Nirvana documentary Montage Of Heck. (This explains why Courtney Love was at the event.) Pusha-T, Yasiin Bey, and Ty Dolla $ign appear as well.
It’s now out on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal. The tracks on all streaming services are listed with the wrong titles, however. Kids See Ghosts are not making this easy for us. Stream the album and find the correct, confirmed tracklist below.
01 “Feel The Love”
03 “4th Dimension” (Feat. Louis Prima)
04 “Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)”
06 “Kids See Ghosts”
07 “Cudi Montage”
Digital copies of the album are available with the various Kids See Ghosts merch bundles that West and Cudi are selling.
