Kanye West’s latest album, “The Life of Pablo,” has been out for nearly five months, but it appears the rapper isn't nearly done tweaking his masterpiece.
West’s album was removed from Tidal briefly Wednesday, raising questions among fans. According to Entertainment Weekly, the album was taken down to be “refreshed,” and the revamp includes a new song, titled “Saint Pablo” — the same name given to West’s recently announced multicity tour. The new addition has yet to appear on iTunes versions of the album, but it can be listened to here.
The “Father Stretch My Hands” rapper will be performing tracks from “The Life of Pablo” on tour in North America this fall. Presale tickets for the “Saint Pablo” tour are currently available to AmEx card holders through Friday. Tidal also plans to do a presale ticket release rollout of its own, allowing subscribers to lock in their seats before the general public. General admission tickets will be available on sites like Live Nation and Ticketmaster on Saturday. Prices range from $29 to $199 and will likely increase once they are resold.
The initial tour announcement featured more than 30 dates. That number has since increased, with West adding five more shows. The “Saint Pablo” tour now features a second date in Toronto, Miami and Oakland, California; a third stop in Los Angeles; and a new stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Those not able to score tickets to the “Saint Pablo” tour just might be able to see it anyway. Not long after West announced plans to hit the road, wife Kim Kardashian revealed that she would be live-streaming aspects of the tour. She did not reveal how much she planned to capture, but she assured fans it would "be fun."
The “Saint Pablo” tour kicks off Aug. 25 in Indianapolis.
