Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ Has Sprung a Leak
This is not a drill
Kanye West has talked about his new album Yeezus. Kanye West has previewed Yeezus at listening sessions in New York (read our report from that here) and Switzerland (watch footage of that here). Kanye West has performed two songs from Yeezus on Saturday Night Live. Now, you can hear Yeezus in its entirety — illegally. A leak of West’s sixth studio album showed up on a password-protected file-sharing service a little after 12:30 p.m. EST Friday (June 14) and is now floating around the internet. The album officially debuts on June 18.
Now that the record’s leaked, more details on the project have surfaced. In addition to previously confirmed collaborators Chief Keef, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Daft Punk, Rick Rubin, Hudson Mohawke, Travi$ Scott, and Arca, Tri Angle Records has revealed that signee Evian Christ worked on “I’m In It.” Mohawke also shared on Twitter that he helped on several tracks, but “credits still being 100000% finalised.”
More Yeezus video projections will take place over the weekend in Los Angeles, San Diego, Detroit, Dallas, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, London, Dublin, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Antwerp.
