Kanye West uploaded two “new” tracks on his Soundcloud 15 days ago, and everyone is just now finding out about it. Having never used the streaming service to share his music, the release was quite a surprise. For everyone freaking out on social media over the news, sorry to break it to you, but these songs have already been made.
The tracks are simply renovated. West has revisited his brooding, dark 808’s and Heartbreak era by “remixing” the first track off of the album, “Say You Will”. It’s pretty much the same as the original version, he just incorporated some effects and featured Pulitzer award-winning, singer/composer Caroline Shaw. As for “When I See It”, West used the beat he produced for The Weeknd’s song from Beauty Behind The Madness,“Tell Your Friends”, to perform drowsy lyrics in auto tune. The release doesn’t seem like much, but if you’ve been anticipating on SWISH, you’re not complaining. No telling how much longer we have to wait until that album surfaces. At least we know he’s in the studio working on something. Check out the revamped tracks below.
