So cool! Two new Kanye West tracks — an alternate version of ‘Say You Will’ and another called ‘When I See It’ — just dropped, and they’re nothing short of amazing. It’s not clear if these songs are on Kanye’s forthcoming new album, ‘SWISH,’ but either way, we love them. Listen to the songs here!
Two new Kanye West songs were just released on SoundCloud, the popular streaming service, and they’re awesome! Kanye nor SoundCould has confirmed the legitimacy of the account which uploaded the songs, but Travi$ Scott shared a link to the account on Instagram with the caption, “It starts.”
While we love the tracks, we’re not sure if “new” is an accurate way of describing them. “Say You Will” is a reworked version of the 808s & Heartbreak opener, which was released in 2008, and “When I See It” uses the beat Kanye produced for The Weeknd‘s “Tell Your Friends,” which was released on the latter’s 2015 album, Beauty Behind the Madness. It’s also worth noting that the fresh tracks sound reminiscent of Kanye’s sound on 808s & Heartbreak, so we think it’s safe to assume these songs won’t appear on his highly-anticipated new album, SWISH, which still doesn’t have a tracklist or release date, according to The Verge.
Listen to the “new” songs below!
