Kanye West Breaks Down The Inspiration Behind New Album At The Rolling Stone HQ | Video


After hitting the Facebook & Twitter HQ to introduce them to his new album, Kanye dropped into the Rolling Stone magazine’s offices to play them and talk about his new currently untitled album.
Gotta give it to Yeezy, his passion for his music is very evident and I wish more artists nowadays even expressed at least 10% of that passion.

West says the vibe of his new record is positivity, acknowledging that he’s made mistakes in his life. Adding that he believes great art doesn’t have to come from dark places, he said, “I feel like [now] I can be a vessel for good will and energy.” Dressed in a tailored charcoal gray suit, black wayfarer-style sunglasses and lace-less Dries Van Noten shoes, West opened up his laptop and fired through nearly a dozen new tracks plus snippets of unfinished ones. He played the full version of “My Chain Heavy” (the racially charged song he debuted a cappella at Facebook earlier this week), which was anchored by an old-school beat with a spacey whistle hook. Other songs featured some of Kanye’s most adventurous and experimental music yet: heavy beats, cellos, sparse piano lines, fuzzed-out electric guitar solos, and spooky sci-fi melodies.
