Kanye West Debuts New Song ‘New Slaves’ in Cities Worldwide

Kanye West

Yeezy season is officially underway. On the eve of his fifth appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” Kanye West has debuted a new song and visual for fans across the world via projectors.

“NEW SONG AND VISUAL FROM MY NEW ALBUM BEING PROJECTED TONIGHT ACROSS THE GLOBE ON 66 BUILDINGS, LOCATIONS @ KANYEWEST.COM,” tweeted ‘Ye.

On his official website, there is a map of 10 cities, 66 landmarks and buildings in North America, Europe, and Australia where he will display his new material.

The song is called “New Slaves,” based on a tweet from Kanye’s creative partner Virgil Abloh. “YEEZY SEASON. NEW SLAVES VIDEO PREMIERE. NO YOUTUBE. LIVE IN THE STREETS IN 66 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. TONIGHT,” he tweeted.

A black-and-white image of ‘Ye’s face is projected against a building as he raps along to the song. “You see it’s leaders and it’s followers, but I’d rather be a dick than a swallower,” he spits.

Other lyrics include, “My mama was raised in the era when clean water was only served to the fairer skin.”

The follow-up to 2010′s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is expected to arrive on June 18.

He will perform new material off the album on tomorrow’s episode of “SNL.”

UPDATE: Watch footage from the New York and Hollywood projections below.

    @Wait…, I agree. In the music climate today everything is so redundant. This is refreshing and a great marketing plan. I’ve always admired his artistic creativity. I just hope the music is just as good.

    This is what I’m talking about, while all these ignorant fools are out here making up sh*t and talking sh*t about Kanye’s relationship, he is out here grinding and creating receipts. Haters will learn.

    This is creative as hell, and that’s one of the reasons I respect Kanye. You can never predict what his next move is going to be; he never tries to do what every other redundant thing this rap artists in the game do. Can’t wait for his SNL performances or his album; it’s probably about to be album of the year

    Now this is creative. Rappers don’t do stuff like this, ARTISTS do things like this!
