Kanye West's auto-tuned vocals can be heard on the bridge of The Weeknd's "Tell All Your Friends," which made us think there could be a Ye demo version somewhere out there. Today, that version has been released, along with an alternate take on 808s & Heartbreak's opening track, "Say You Will".
The songs were shared on a SoundCloud attributed to Kanye West (which Pitchfork has verified is legitimate), and according to Travis Scott, this is just the beginning. Is Yeezy season finally upon us after many false starts? We'll have to wait and see, but this is definitely a good sign. Here's hoping for more demos (and hopefully some actual singles!) soon.
Spent the whole summer
Trying to be at the wrong place
At the right time
But I know what's mine when I see it
I know, I know, I know
When I see it riding down the 405
