New Music: Kanye West singing?

Kanye West’s arrest at LAX airport yesterday overshadow a major move in his career: on September 7, Kanye released the single “Love Lockdown,” his first all-singing, no rapping track.

“Love Lockdown” is expected to appear on Kanye’s upcoming disc, 808’s & Heartbreak, which will be released on December 16. Like the lead single, the entire album consists of Kanye singing with the aid of a studio device called an Auto-Tune.

Kanye performed “Love Lockdown” on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, and the track leaked onto the internet a couple days later. The song sounded richer and more textured during Kanye’s VMA performance, which lead some to believe that the track leaked on the internet is the not the final version: perhaps more studio tweaking will be involved before the 808’s & Heartbreak hits record stores.
