Kanye West lit up the internet last week with an exclusive listening session for his eighth studio album Ye. Though some people didn’t fully understand or appreciate the star-studded event, it was able to generate a considerable amount buzz across social media platforms as well as popular news outlets. So it’s no surprise that Ye decided to host another listening session for Kids See Ghosts, his highly anticipated collaborative album with Kid Cudi.
After some technical difficulties, and the livestream being pushed back multiple times. It's finally here.
Unlike the premiere event for Ye, Thursday night’s session went down in Los Angeles, where fans, friends, and media personalities gathered to hear the seven-track project in its entirety. But for those who failed to secure an invite, Ye and Cudi invited the world to experience the session via a livestream on the WAV Media app.
Kids See Ghosts was confirmed back in April, at the same time Kanye announced his eighth studio album. Since the announcement, we’ve received only a handful of details about the project: Takashi Murakami handled the cover art; Kanye helmed the production; and that it would span only seven tracks (just like Ye and Pusha-T’s DAYTONA).
Several weeks ago, Kanye appeared to unveil Kids See Ghosts’ official tracklist, which included a cut called “Ghost Town.” That record was ultimately placed on Ye, which left one blank spot on the rappers' joint effort.
Kids See Ghosts had a number of notable guest artists, such as Yasiin Bey, Pusha-T, and Ty Dolla Sign. The fourth cut also includes a nod to Ye's “Ghost Town” cut with the lines: “Nothing hurts me anymore, guess what baby, I feel free.”
To hear the mysterious fourth track, as well as the rest of Kids See Ghosts, check out the album's live listening session on WAV Media. And be sure to keep it locked as more details about the event come through.
