Kanye West – Southside Serenade

Kanye West - Southside SerenadeKanye West – Southside Serenade

Brand new single from Kanye West titled Southside Serenade is here as we anticipate his soon to drop album.

Today, we may very well have scored a premature taste of what’s to come. HypeBeast has shared a link to a new Kanye West track called “Southside Serenade,” which may very well be slated for his new project. In truth, the song is far from “Polo Ye”; it seems to be reminiscent of Life Of Pablo’s “Ultralight Beam,” or even some of 808s & Heartbreak. 


Thematically, the Serenade appears to be an ode to the late Donda West, who continues to live on through her son’s music.  The song is almost entirely sung, and a synthesized vocoder provides the instrumental backbone. It’s unclear whether or not this one is set to appear on Ye’s upcoming album, but if so, perhaps we can begin to pinpoint a direction. The unfinished nature does seem to suggest an unreleased demo, as it bears similarities to Paul McCartney collaboration “Only One.”
