Tidal extends free trial so users can hear Kanye West’s album updates

Rapper announced yesterday (March 16) that he has "fixed" three of its tracks

Tidal has extended its free trial period by 30 days so users can hear updates Kanye West is making to his latest studio album ‘The Life Of Pablo’.

“Kanye West continues to deliver new music exclusively to TIDAL,” the streaming service wrote in a message to users yesterday (March 16). “Listen to the new version of ‘Wolves’ and the new song ‘Fade’ now that was just added to ‘The Life of Pablo’.

“Because TIDAL is about discovering new music, we are extending your complimentary TIDAL trial with an additional 30 days so you’re always first to hear new music from Kanye. So go ahead. Keep listening to ‘The Life of Pablo’ and more of your favorite music.”

The rapper released the album, his seventh record to date, in February, with the LP airing exclusively via Jay Z’s music streaming service Tidal. West took the album off-sale a day after its release to continue work on it and has since hinted that it may never be released commercially, further proclaiming that CDs are dead.

The rapper announced yesterday that he has now “fixed” three of its tracks. Album cut ‘Famous’ now includes a Nina Simone vocal line layered underneath the track’s Sister Nancy ‘Bam Bam’ sample (the track was reportedly called ‘Nina Chop’ in Kanye’s handwritten notes).

Another album cut, ‘Wolves’, now features more prominent contributions from Vic Mensa and Sia, while finally, Frank Ocean debuts on brand new song ‘Frank’s Track’, described as a 38-second extension of ‘Wolves’ and containing his part from the original now contained in a stand alone track.

Kanye West has also announced that he has started work on the follow-up to ‘The Life Of Pablo’, currently titled ‘Turbo Grafx 16’.
