Kanye West previews new song ‘Awesome’ in ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ – listen

The short clip emerges on the US television show featuring the rapper's wife

Kanye West has previewed new song ‘Awesome’ in the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The TV programme, which features West’s wife Kim Kardashian, aired in America last night (September 1) and showed the couple in the rapper’s recording studio. Some music was heard in the background while Kardashian speaks, before a high-quality snippet of a new song was played. Audio from the episode can be heard below.

Earlier this year West revealed details of the follow-up to his 2013 album ‘Yeezus’, saying he already has most of the first single finished. He explained that he’s recorded a new song similar to his 2012 Jay Z collaboration ‘Niggas In Paris’ that could be played in a club, saying it’s “so good the album has to be balanced against it”.

West added that he originally wanted to release the album in June, but now hopes to see it come out by the end of the year at the latest.

“I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while. I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like ‘Yeezus’, and just kill it for the summer. But then I’m like, I have to work on Adidas and be with my child.”
