Despite vowing to “never never never” release The Life of Pablo outside of Tidal, Kanye West’s latest opus has now appeared on a bunch of regular streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music, and is also available to download officially for the first time, as Billboard report.
Alongside the album news, a new track from Kanye called “Saint Pablo” — not featured on the The Life of Pablo — has leaked online. Kanye reportedly played the song at an early listening party in LA, and said in a subsequent tweet that he wrote it “after admitting my greatest shame my personal debt. But I’m not ashamed anymore.”
The song features some amazing vocals from soulful London singer Sampha, who’s also worked with artists like Drake, SBTRKT, and Jessie Ware before and who has been promising his own debut album for years now.
You can pick up The Life of Pablo on Kanye’s official website sounding newly updated, remixed, and remastered. According to Def Jam, the album is still being updated and will be re-released in the months ahead with new versions. For the time being, though, this is the closest thing to a final version you’re gonna get.
