Kanye West Debuts “Onsite,” Performs “I Am A God,” “Black Skinhead” & “New Slaves” At Governors Ball
Kanye West had the honor of shutting down New York’s Governors Ball music festival on Sunday (June 9) evening, and his 90-minute set wasn’t just about all the classics — nope, ‘Ye debuted yet another new track from his upcoming Yeezus LP, “Onsite,” a pummeling, urgent electro track with an eerie hook and production that led some to speculate that the song was a Daft Punk collaboration. (I’m going to go ahead and guess that it is, too — although if the supposed list of credits is to be believed, it may only feature production from Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and not his other half.)
He also three other previously premiered Yeezus sessions: “I Am A God,” “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead.” (Looking at those titles all lined up, subtlety doesn’t seem to be a priority in the Yeezus era, does it?) Watch “Onsite” up top, then see the rest of the clips below.
