Kanye West has a lot of recent audio to leak online this week. First, he showed us a nasty side to him in a backstage rant at SNL which included calling Taylor Swift a “fake ass”; now, a whole zip folder of unreleased material has leaked online – although much of it has already been taken down.
It seems the leaked recordings were from sessions of The Life of Pablo, and are predominantly alternate or original versions of tracks which made it onto the album, including Waves, Highlights, FML, Fade and Wolves.
On top of the music we’ve already heard however, have come a number of surprises – and tracks that sound like they really should’ve stayed on the album. Unheard collaborations and tracks among the leaked files including collaboration with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon on Fall Out of Heaven and a track featuring Swizz Beats. Listen to the Bon Iver collab here:
One track that is especially significant is yet another alternate version of Yeezy’s previously released single All Day – featuring Kendrick Lamar and Paul McCartney, but we were asked to take it down – soz.
Good luck finding playable tracks of many of these alternate versions. All you can really do is look at the hyperlinked tracks on the Reddit page linked above. Don’t Google the tracks either; most if not all of the links have been erased.
Presumably, Kanye’s people must have quickly learned to dissolve the problem before they have another SNL leak on their hands.
