Kanye West has given an interview for the first time since releasing the much anticipated “DONDA” album last week. Yeezy, spotted touring art exhibitions in Berlin this week, spoke to the German tabloid newspaper, “Blid” to talk about his plans now that “DONDA” is out.
He revealed the purpose of his trip to Berlin – he plans to meet some of his favorite architects to discuss plans to rebuild schools in his hometown of Chicago. He will also be working on new music while over there saying, “God put me on this earth to make music,” said Kanye. “God put Demna here to design. God put Tadao Andō here to create architecture. God gifted Turrell. God all send us here for a certain reason and I have to make music.”
He continued, “I produce music in my thoughts, no matter where I am.” Kanye then played a new song featuring André 3000. He didn’t say whether the track was intended for the “DONDA” album or a forthcoming project. A tiny snippet of the unreleased track made its way to social media.
Kanye and the ATLien have made some great music together in the past, both appearing on Chris Brown’s “Deuces (Remix)” and Fonzworth Bentley’s “Everybody.”
Yesterday, Kanye dropped the video from “Come to Life,” the first visual from the “DONDA” album. The video features footage from Kanye’s Soldier Field listening event in Chicago. It begins with a birds-eye-view of the replica of his Chicago home that was the stage for the event. Also making the video were scenes from the night of Kanye on fire and Kim Kardashian in a wedding dress, making her way to Kanye in the center of the stadium.
