    Anybody here a Kanye West fan? His new album is entitled Yeezus. It will be released on June 18, 2013 in North America (and if we are to believe in industry standards,
    June 14, 2013 in Australia!) and will be the follow up to 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, one of my favorite albums ever. Young Chop, Chief Keef, Travi$ Scott, King L, Pusha T and
    Daft Punk have been confirmed to appear on the record.

    Lead Single "New Slaves" was premiered on city streets across the globe, and will be released later this week.

    Another track, "Black Skinhead", was also performed on NBC's Saturday Night Live.​

    Here's the other new song he did live on SNL. Black Skinhead.

    This must have been the "primal" song Daft Punk mentioned. I'm really loving these two songs.

    I'm going to bet my house that the tags displayed in the visuals are the names of some tracks on Yeezus. I'm fucking calling it!

    If that's true, names of tracks off Yeezus could be-

    "New Slaves" (confirmed)
    "Diamond Chain"
    "Leaders"
    "Followers"
    "New Taste"
    "X-Ray OK"
    "Hi-Fidelity"
    "Savers"
    "Not For Sale"

    This is a guess though. Don't quote me on this! :lol:

    I heard "New Slaves" yesterday but I haven't heard "Skinhead" yet

    EDIT: okay, if these two songs are any indication of how "Yeezus" will sound as a whole, then, I'm excited!

    Black Skinhead samples Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People"

    I knew one day, someone would put Manson's horrible music to good use. Good for you, Kanye.

    Black Skinhead = YES YES YES. I love that industrial feel. And it's a really different live setup than you would usually see from a rapper.

    Kanye always finds ways to make his production new and interesting. This is no different.

    But calling the album Yeezus? Talk about self indulgence. I really sometimes hate him for shit like that.

    leaders/followers make it seem not true.

    Is there a studio version of New Slaves? Or just the live performances (I mean, the projections)? I can't find the studio version on YT.
