New Kanye Tomorrow?
Above is the cover art for Kanye West's new single, "Love Lockdown." Last night on the otherwise-dreadful VMA's, 'Ye debuted the surprisingly soulful (but rap-free) song, from his still-untitled fourth LP due in December. Rumors circulated over the weekend that we'd get our first taste of the studio version on iTunes earlier this morning, but it never hit. With the circulation of the cover art, which features a deflated red balloon and not the trademark dropout bear, all signs point to the song's official release tomorrow. You can bet that when the song drops, we'll offer our thoughts. But judging from last night's performance, the song only pushes West further into a realm of his own as an artist.
