New stuff: Real Friends

Kanye West just released his best song in five years.

Pretty dreamy, huh? It’s certainly better than his terrible “Jumpman” freestyle, and definitely more evocative of his older work than either “FourFiveSeconds” or “Only One” were. The echoing snare and rich-dude-storytelling on “Real Friends” sounds like applied Drake, which fits considering Drake nowadays sounds like graduated Kanye. Even if this turns out to be the only accessible song on SWISH (please change the name), it’ll give him one more than he had on Yeezus.

I doubted SWISH was going to be any good, but “Real Friends” is making me reconsider. When is it coming out, by the way?
