This is Kanye‘s track about the phoenix—you know, the armless one from the original My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy cover, aka Selita Ebanks. Feels like a bit of a spoiler alert for anyone who hasn’t seen Runaway, his 40-minute art film/video, but then it’s debuting tonight so probably NBD. Music is appropriately dramatic—what’s an epic without a string section and a shredding organ solo? It’s a template set by the ancient Greeks, at least.
