Kanye West - "Eyes Closed"


"Eyes Closed" is, apparently, a new cut from Kanye West that didn't make it on to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. With a blippy drum loop that sounds as if it's borrowed from West's own "Say You Will" from 2008's underrated 808s and Heartbreak and the Gospelesque backing vocals that became routine during last year's G.O.O.D. Friday weeks, "Eyes Closed" is a snapshot of an artist in transition. Like "See Me Now," this new cut should have been included in "deluxe versions" of Fantasy. Instead, rumor has it that "Eyes Closed" is to be remade by Snoop Dogg and John Legend for Snoop's upcoming album. OK.
