Single Review – Kanye West – Say You Will (Ft. Caroline Shaw)

Emerging from his recent anonymity to add further mystery is Kanye West with a rework of ‘Say You Will’ from 808s and Heartbreak. This is the first material published on his long-time dormant Soundcloud page and since this track is a cover of previously released material then this sheds little light on his upcoming SWISH album which we all remain in the dark on. Nevertheless, this reworked material will hopefully lead on to some evidence of his next album’s existence aside from the two McCartney collaborations we got at the start of the year. ‘Say You Will’ features West’s auto-tuned vocal and a hazy arrangement of electronica and sparse percussion samples. The washed out backing vocals add this atmospheric style and inject a slight haunting quality to the track, indeed it moves to a from a relaxing and unsettling listen. A nice rework however, but lets hope for some new material soon.
