Kanye West surprised us with new music on Tuesday. West first teased fans on social media about the release, and then dropped a track titled “Wash Us in the Blood,” on which he joined forces with Travis Scott.
The song was produced by West alongside some of his frequent collaborators like BoogzDaBeast, Ronny J, and FNZ. The rapper previously revealed that the mix was handled by the legendary Dr. Dre.
Hear the song and check out the music video directed by Arthur Jafa below.
“Wash Us in the Blood” represents Kanye West’s first new work since 2019’s Christian hip-hop record Jesus Is King. The song is expected to serve as the opening single for West’s upcoming studio album God’s Country according to rapper’s social media posts.
There isn’t much info about the album so far, but the GQ’s Will Welch managed to hear some snippets of it back in April and described them as “worship songs.” Multiple reports say that the record should be out by the end of the year.
