If you weren't one of the lucky few who managed to get tickets to one of the screenings of Kanye West's twinned fashion and music premiere, don't fret: Your ticket to the launch of Yeezy Season 3, as well as the world's biggest listening party for "The Life of Pablo," West's seventh solo album, is available here. Tidal is offering a free stream of the performance, which begins at 4 p.m. EST. It will begin playing below at that time.
While West's stature in the fashion world has grown considerably since he first declared he wanted to design clothes, most of the fervor surrounding Thursday's event can be linked to "Pablo," which West has been fussing over for months. Over the past several weeks, the album's title has changed from "So Help Me God," to "Swish," to "Waves," to "T.L.O.P.," an acronym whose meaning West kept secret until earlier this week, and as recently as Tuesday, the star tweeted an image of himself in a recording booth, implying that he was revising some of the album's verses.
Even the album's final tracklisting has changed twice in the past two weeks. The final 10 songs feature a number of guests, including Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Vic Mensa and Sia. While industry observers assume that “The Life of Pablo” will be released officially on Friday, West has not confirmed those suspicions.
West’s fashion-conscious fans have been treated to a burst of clues this week as well. Images of boots, gloves, sweaters and the coveted Yeezy Boost sneakers have all popped up in West’s twitter feed this week. Those images offer enough to suggest that West’s primary focus as a designer remains extremely expensive sportswear, a departure from early proclamations that he wanted to make clothes that everybody can afford. No release date for Yeezy Season 3 has been released.
This event is free to watch and accessible to anyone. Watch it via the player below.
