Kanye West’s two-night headlining gig at the Wireless Festival this past weekend in London came with some alleged boos, his usual rants and even some bromance with an absent Drizzy but it didn’t stop him from bringing some new tunes across the pond. According to Twitter, music’s masked marauder debuted a reported 20 songs for a private set at a London club with righthand man Virgil Abloh. Even though no footage of the event was leaked, insiders tweeted about the Kanye experience. “YAE AND VIRGIL PRIVATE SET LASTNIGHT. NEW YEEZY JOINTS SOUNDING CRAZY. #luxuryexcellence #yeezy #kanyewest #turnt,” Brandon Sales wrote on Instagram.


Perhaps the G.O.O.D. Music mastermind was crowdsourcing reactions in order to make adjustments to for his upcoming album. Kanye is set to headline the Jay Z-curated Made In America festival in Philadelphia later this summer so there’s a chance audiences could be treated to new material. Maybe the full “Black Bruce Wayne” could even make its debut. Over the past year, ‘Ye hasn’t been subtle about the follow-up to his 2013 LP Yeezus. “I think my next album is going to be eight songs,” West said at last year’s Art Basel. “It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn’t made Yeezus, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.” Photo Credit: Instagram/ brandonsales
