Kanye West has posted a previously unreleased 17-minute single. The track is an expanded version of J Holiday’s “Bed,” and debuted during West’s New York Fashion Week Yeezy Season 5 show.
“Bed Yeezy Season 5” features The Dream and DJDS but doesn’t include any of Yeezy’s rapping. The sultry, expansive mid-paced track is percussion-free and features layered vocal harmonies, deep, atmospheric synth bass and strings. At about the 13-minute mark the song becomes wafty and experimental, as a wash of keyboard sounds flow together.
The track started out as a demo Kanye wrote 10 years ago for Chris Brown and the original was featured on the unofficial mixtape Lovetape: The Demos, reports The Fader.
“so much fun working on the soundtrack version of ‘bed’ for the #yeezy 5 show congrats kanye & crew big up @TheKingDream,” Tweeted DJDS.
