Today, Kanye West launched his highly anticipated “Season 2” of his wildly successful Yeezy fashion line at Adidas. Like last February’s launch of the fall line, the fashion show came with a brand new song. (The Vic Mensa and Sia-featuring “Wolves” soundtracked the Yeezy Season 1 launch.) The track— likely called “Fade”, though it’s also been reported as “I Feel It”—was first premiered at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art in a Steve McQueen-directed video, but its appearance at the Yeezy Season 2 launch is the first time the song has made its way online. 

According to Post Malone, he and Ty Dolla $ign are featured on the track. The song also features an interpolation of Aaliyah’s “Rock the Boat” from her 2001 self-titled album, Aaliyah

The new song is presumably off of Kanye’s upcoming new album Swish. The album has no release date set.
