CURRENT: Kanye West – “All Day” (ft. Theophilus London & Allan Kingdom)

Kanye West just unveiled the studio version of “All Day,” the track he performed at the BRIT Awards, and which will be featured on his forthcoming 7th solo LP, So Help Me God. Upon an initial listen, the song immediately makes a declaration for radio domination. The four minute radio cut will be a staple on Urban radio stations for the rest of the year, with its staccato, flashing synths and pounding bass producing one of the year’s best hip-hop beats. On the studio version, which you can hear at Consequence of Sound, at the 4:17 mark the song completely changes, first with acoustic guitars and whistling abruptly changing the mood of the song. Then things get really weird as Kanye hits us with heavy, distorted synths and vocals highly filtered through a vocoder. It’s all very surreal, meaning it’s all very Kanye West.
