Yeezy season feels imminent.
During Thursday’s debut of his new adidas shoes in New York, Kanye West debuted a new song called “Wolves,” which features rapper Vic Mensa and “Chandelier” singer Sia. The unveiling of the Yeezy 750 Boost at New York Fashion Week was shown in 50 theaters around the world; attendees probably weren’t expecting this, though.
“Wolves” is sonically different from the two newest Kanye released since New Year’s, “Only One” and “FourFiveSeconds.” West’s voice is heavily distorted, going beyond just Auto-Tune used on 808s & Heartbreak and subsequent releases. Ye also continues his pattern of recruiting up-and-coming talent for his productions, including the 21-year-old Mensa, a fellow Chicagoan.
A YouTube video of the new track was quickly removed on Thursday, but there’s a version of the song on SoundCloud.
