'Ye hints at more Yeezus tracks
Kanye West's latest album, Yeezus, took the world by storm when it dropped in June, and if he's to be believed, there's much more where that came from. During a recent interview with Los Angeles-based Power 106 FM, Kanye mentioned that there were at least five additional Yeezus tracks that could be released by the end of the year.
The two-hour interview covered a lot of ground - including his much-publicized engagement to Kim Kardashian and his foray into hip hop fashion - but it was his discussion of how he decides what to take off and leave on albums that he revealed there were five songs still out there. He has even been performing one of them, "I Am Not Here" at early stops in his tour. The clip seems to confirm what producer Rick Rubin said earlier this year about the initial plans for Yeezus.
"Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album," Rubin said in an interview with Newsweek. "But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, 'Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.'"
Kanye recently completed a two-night stand in Los Angeles, and continues his extensive tour with Kendrick Lamar in Vancouver before heading to Denver, Minneapolis and Chicago.
