Kanye West "Say You Will" (ft. Caroline Shaw) / "When I See It"
Published Oct 19, 2015Though it's looking like Kanye West's SWISH may take another year to hit our ears, the famous rapper has used his SoundCloud page to drop off a pair of tracks. To be fair, one is a revamp of an 808s & Heartbreak track and the other is a cover of a Weeknd song, but beggars can't be choosers, guys.
First up is the newly redone "Say You Will," which now features work from avant-garde composer Caroline Shaw. Though the electro-metronome pace and melody sticks to the script, as do West's AutoTuned croons, Shaw adds a crackling spoken word track in the background, while the choir sounds are explored even further.
"When I See It," meanwhile, is Kanye West's take on the Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness single "Tell Your Friends." It's still slathered in soul music-twisting samples, but this time we're treated to Lord Yeezus' toasty timbre waxing wild on the track.
