Fresh Out Of The Oven.. and it is good! Just in time to ring in the new year, Kanye West drops a new song: a gentle AutoTuned ballad called “Only One.” Paul McCartney is apparently on here, too, presumably on the organ that plays after Kanye implores, “Tell Nori about me.” It’s nothing like Yeezus — naturally — but it’s a beauty. Kanye West had been in the studio with Sir Paul McCartney working on material for his follow-up to Yeezus, and today we finally hear what is said to be the finished version.
“Only One” as “the first publicly available recording from what has become a prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.” Apparently Kanye and Sir Paul started recording together early last year in a Los Angeles bungalow with McCartney improvising on keyboard and West improvising on vocals. The song, which you can stream above, is available on iTunes.
