Yeezus


If you're like us and can't wait for the very impending release of Kanye West's new album Yeezus, here's some tidbits to tide you over.

As one of our favourite blogs The Corner writes, some of his new material is being projected and played at locations all over the world. Here are the times and locations for the projections happening in Auckland tonight.

The New York Times did an interview with Yeezy for their blog. It's fascinating stuff. He's as confident as ever, comparing himself to Steve Jobs and Michael Jordan and gets into talking about the minimal construction of Yeezus. Check it out here. It's filled with other must read material like him regretting ever apologising to Taylor Swift with quotes like this:

But has that instinct led you astray? Like the Taylor Swift interruption at the MTV Video Music Awards, things like that. It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.

And over at the Wall Street Journal, they've got an interview with Rick Rubin about the process and how Kanye promised to "score 40 points in the 4th quarter" to finish Yeezus in time for release.

And with the news that the album's leaked, there's also a number of reviews popping up online as various music reviewers try to figure out their feelings for an undoubtedly complex album while itching to yell "FIRST". Naturally most of this writing is terrible. Do the right thing - buy it in a few days and make up your own mind at the kind pace a good record deserves.
