Tonight, Kanye West debuted a new song in the most Kanye West way possible: By projecting his giant head onto the sides of 66 different buildings around the world.
NEW SONG AND VISUAL FROM MY NEW ALBUM BEING PROJECTED TONIGHT ACROSS THE GLOBE ON 66 BUILDINGS, LOCATIONS @ KANYEWEST.COM-- KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 18, 2013
All the locations where you can check this out—both the new song and the accompanying visual—are mapped on KanyeWest.com: The 10 cities are New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Toronto, Paris, London, Berlin, and Sydney, with most or all cities featuring multiple locations.
Or, of course, you can just try to watch the whole thing online. It’s surprisingly hard to find a full video of the song, reportedly called “New Slaves.” Perhaps, as with videos of Kanye’s surprise concert appearance earlier this week, they’re being taken down. But I’ll post the best video I can below.
To see Kanye perform a new song or two live—he’s got a new album out, possibly on June 18, so that seems safe to assume—tune in to Saturday Night Live tomorrow night, where he’ll be the musical guest.
