David: Kanye West x Runaway Film x Album Launch

Kanye West at his premier of Runaway
Two days ago Kanye West gave a preview of his highly anticipated album and 45 minute long video for Runaway at Bafta in London. Instead of playing his album Kanye played his 45 minute long film which features 7 songs off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (dropping November 22nd).

For a little preview for the viewers here at TKFV here are some extra details of what you can expect from the film:
  • Inspired by "Thriller", Prince’s "Purple Rain" and Pink Floyd’s "The Wall"
  • Inspired by Picasso and Matisse
  • Encapsulates “An overall representation of what I dream”
  • There is a scene that features an over-sized paper mache model of Michael Jackson’s head
  • The film was written and directed by Mr. West, with the assistance of art director Vanessa Beecroft
  • Nicki Minaj narrates in a British accent
  • Selita Ebanks is cast as Yeezy’s love interest, and the “Phoenix”
  • Shot in four days while out in Prague, apparently pulling 20 hour days
  • There will be more ballet dancer appearances

Following the film Kanye took to a Q&A with the audience and revealed some of the following:
  • Mos Def has already recorded 5 tracks for his G.O.O.D. debut
  • "So Appalled" is his favourite G.O.O.D. Friday release so far
  • Bon Iver is on 9 tracks off the album
  • The CRS project is still on the cards
  • He wants to tour the new album across the world and eventually perform a show in Egypt by the Pyramids
  • He is finishing up the Jay and Ye album in France at the end of this month, and they have already completed 5 tracks
  • Alicia Keys performed some of the vocals on "Lost in The World"
  • He was trying to sign M.I.A. to G.O.O.D. music a couple of weeks ago
  • Only 1 or 2 of the G.O.O.D. Friday leaks actually appear on the album.

So at the end of the day Kanye is once again on a whole different level than anyone else in the game. Not a big surprise haha, but I'm very excited to see this video and listen to his new album (once again dropping November 22nd). Rosewood!
