What you need to know
- Kanye West is hosting another album event on Apple Music.
- A bizarre muted livestream has been running for hours ahead of a launch later tonight.
Kanye West will reportedly hold another Donda listening event on Apple Music on Thursday night, but a bizarre muted stream has already been running for several hours.
Overnight Apple Music announced the event:
Donda was set for release July 23, but was delayed following a live Apple Music event at Mercedes Benz stadium following which the album didn't surface. Kanye has since been living in a dressing room at the Stadium for two weeks in order to finish the album. It looks like another streaming event is going down tonight.
The stream is available live right now on Apple Music, and has reportedly been intentionally muted. NME reports:
So far in the livestream, West's frequent producer and collaborator Mike Dean has been present, while Chance The Rapper, Steve Lacy and Vic Mensa have also visited West in his one-bedroom room.
West, who has only appeared masked in the livestream, appears to have a scaled-down recording set-up in the room, while he has also been filmed exercising.
The previous event broke Apple Music streaming records with 3.3 million people tuning in. The strange event saw him walk around the stage for around forty minutes whilst his new music played, and West didn't speak the whole time.
