Yesterday night Kanye West held a listening party in the Swiss town of Basel. While showing off his soon-to-be-released album Yeezus he pressed pause and performed an a cappella version of "New Slaves." He also gave a shout out to Daft Punk, saying they collaborated with him on the song "On Sight." Check out the live performance below.
Kanye also did a rare interview with Jon Caramanica of The New York Times, his first in years. The interview, which took place last month at Shangri-la Studio in Malibu, was published this week. In it, Kanye spoke honestly about his whole career, from The College Dropout to Yeezus. He gave his thoughts on how he fits into the music industry, as well as pop culture. He openly discusses the incident with Taylor Swift and the one during Hurricane Katrina. It's a fantastic interview, one worth reading simply because Kanye is so fascinating. Check it out here.
Yeezus is out on June 18th.
