Kanye West has been finishing up his first summer as Bianca Censori's husband in Europe. Overseas, the couple's outfits have been nothing short of head-turning. Earlier in September they made an appearance at London Fashion Week. The father of four notably surprised other Mowalola show patrons by teasing upcoming music. It's unclear when he plans to release his latest work, but as it turns out, there are still previously unreleased tracks from Ye's DONDA era that are only just now seeing the light of day.

As HipHopDX reports, DONDA: With Child, a visual album directed by Vanessa Beecroft leaked online on Thursday (September 21). It was initially expected to arrive on streamers in 2020. However, it's now recognized as an early version of West's DONDA, which landed in 2021 after a particularly tumultuous rollout. The rapper's late mother is heard several times throughout the 35-minute effort. Listeners also received different versions of popular songs like "Off the Grid" and "Hurricane."
