Stop the presses: Today Kanye West launched a SoundCloud account. The announcement came from Travis Scott’s Instagram account, where he cryptically added “It starts.” What starts, exactly? Yeezy Season? What of “Only One”, “Wolves”, “All Day”, and “Fade”? Your guess is as good as ours.
So far only two songs populate Kanye’s SoundCloud account—an AutoTuned ballad called “When I See It” (which is basically a redo of The Weeknd’s Yeezy-produced “Tell Your Friends”) and a cerebral remix of 808s and Heartbreaks’ opener “Say You Will”. No other context is provided for these tracks, though they both share the same, melting oil painting cover-art. Because neither track feels entirely new, fans have posited that Kanye will use this SoundCloud account to share rarities and demos.
Time will tell. Listen to the two tracks below:
