Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign have orchestrated an unveiling, presenting the world with a glimpse into their upcoming auditory opus, “Vultures,” through an evocative cover art revealed on Ty’s Instagram platform.
In this visual depiction, an enigmatic haze blankets the canvas, encapsulating a bird perched atop a shovel resting upon a coffin, set against the backdrop of a serene grassy field. This unveiling arrives on the heels of the duo’s captivating showcase of unreleased music during Art Basel, a prelude to their electric performance at Miami’s vibrant LIV Nightclub.
Accompanying this striking cover art is the long-awaited revelation of the album’s tracklist, teasing listeners with established collaborations and unreleased gems. Among these treasures lie the previously unveiled anthem, “Vultures,” featuring the talents of Bump J and Lil Durk, alongside the elusive “New Body,” featuring Nicki Minaj. This track, initially slated for West’s 2018 album “Yandhi,” found itself in the shadows as the album underwent shelving, ultimately leading to the emergence of 2019’s “Jesus Is King.” Additionally, the album promises the inclusion of “Everybody,” a composition that ingeniously samples the Backstreet Boys’ iconic 1997 hit, “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).”
A recent listening event on Monday night (Dec. 11) unveiled a myriad of featured artists set to grace “Vultures,” with Future, Playboi Carti, Freddie Gibbs, Lil Baby, and a surprise appearance by North West, partaking in a mesmerizing musical rendezvous alongside her father, Ye. The evening sparkled with star-studded attendance, as luminaries including Offset, Lil Durk, and Freddie Gibbs gathered to witness the melodic fusion unveiled by the dynamic partnership of Ye and Ty Dolla $ign.
In this enigmatic journey, “Vultures” promises to soar high, weaving together a tapestry of musical brilliance and collaborative synergy, enticing audiences with its unrevealed treasures and a visual narrative that sets the stage for an unforgettable sonic experience.
