Thank god it’s Friday.
Governor Ball announced their lineup today, which includes Kanye West as a headliner. Even better, Kim Kardashian let on in a recent tweet that her husband might start dropping new music every Friday leading up to the release of his upcoming album Swish, like he did for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010.
The new track was posted to Soundcloud momentarily Friday afternoon before being taken down; Kanye explained in a tweet that there was a “slight distortion” that needed to be fixed in the track. Not too long after, he announced the new version was uploaded, saying he “wasn’t satisfied with the sound quality” the first time. UPDATE: Kanye deleted and re-uploaded the track a total of three times according to Pitchfork and is now up to listen to on his website in addition to Soundcloud.
The track called “Real Friends” features Ty Dolla $ign and also contains a small preview of “No More Parties in LA” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
So after much ado and redo: listen to “Real Friends” here.
