Kanye West On Saturday Night Live Debuts New Track, ‘Black Skinhead’ Off His New Album Yeezus, Set To Drop On June 18 — Video Inside
Kanye West premiered the new screamo-rap track “Black Skinhead” on the Saturday Night Live season 38 finale. The new song finds its way to fans almost 24 hours after West premiered another new track, this earlier one called “New Slaves,” via projections on walls around the world.
Both tracks are from his upcoming sixth studio LP, Yeezus, set to drop on June 18. (It’s all happening so fast!) In an interview, Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, who laid down the live and programmed drums for the LP, said that West was “kind of screaming primally, actually” through the recording session. “Black Skinhead” definitely fits the Bangalter’s description. A revamped take on Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll” aka “The Hey Song” is reminiscent in the backbeat.
