Kanye West‘s Yeezus tour only has a few stops under its belt, but it’s already dominating headlines thanks to the extravagant set design, the controversial merch and the Jesus lookalike. And now West has thrown another bit of chum into the water to get everyone buzzing. During his shows — most recently the San Jose show Tuesday night (October 22) — he has been playing part of an unreleased track, presumably from the Yeezus sessions.
It’s rumored to be titled “I Am Not Here,” and it seems to be a gloomy, throbbing dirge, with Ye proclaiming “I am not here right now, I am not home.” The brief clip almost sounds like it could have served as some sort of interlude on Yeezus. If you’ll recall, back in June executive producer Rick Rubin said in an interview that Yeezus was originally slated to be 16 tracks, but that after he and Kanye whittled it down, there was potentially enough left over for a second album.
Hear part of the unreleased song below, at the 2:47 mark.
