Kanye West - Heartless

Album:
808's & Heartbreak

While we aren’t celebrating a birthday here at DJBooth, we have been blessed with a present from Kanye West.  More specifically, we have all been blessed with a gift from the (former?) Louis Vuitton Don.  Late Wednesday evening, West posted an un-mastered version (note: which has since been updated with a mastered version) of his second single, Heartless, from his forthcoming release, 808’s & Heartbreak, on his regularly-updated blog.  In line with the title of the project, the single tells the tale of a man who lost his soul to an ex-lover, all over… yup, you guessed it… an 808 drum pattern.  Similar to the Chicago native’s current single, Love Lockdown, the new record features West singing with an auto-tune effect instead of rapping.  808’s & Heartbreak will be released off Def Jam on November 24.
