The track was previously previewed live at the Brit Awards
Kanye West has unveiled the studio version of his new single ‘All Day’.
The track was originally previewed with a live performance at last week’s Brit Awards, but now the official recording was premiered this afternoon (March 2) on LA radio station Power 106 and New York’s Hot 97. Listen via Soundcloud below.
Meanwhile, the rapper spoke earlier today at Oxford University.
West discussed the damaging effect that class distinction has on America and the UK and called upon society to be less narcissistic in a speech at Oxford University.
The rapper was delivering his talk at the city’s Natural History Museum this afternoon (March 2) on behalf of the Oxford Guild Society. Addressing societal problems, he stated: “My Achilles’ heel is my ego. But if I, Kanye West, can remove my ego, then there’s hope for everyone.”
The talk was given to an audience of 350 students out of 5,000 who balloted for tickets. West was greeted by a standing ovation from the students, who he asked to remain totally silent. “If I hear so much as a whisper then I lose my stream of consciousness,” he said, before proceeding to talk about his time at art school, where he said he would have hoped to be “Picasso, or greater”.
West also talked about his progression as an artist and revealed that his main focus now was collaboration. “Ideas are free. Something that’s happened to my progression as an artist with the advent of a person called Drake, who blew out every Number One, is that now I realise I am a servant and have a responsibility to serve,” he said.
Last week’s Brit Awards were also mentioned, with West taking a dig at the official sponsor: “There should be an awards show for the Nobel Prize, but that probably wouldn’t sell as many Mastercard ads… No offence to Mastercard, but that was a big fucking logo.”
On Sunday the rapper revealed that his new album will be titled ‘So Help Me God’. West announced the news via Twitter alongside artwork from the forthcoming release.
