In an effort to put his name back in the spotlight but to also shed some light on some artists that might not be familiar to many, Kanye West has been releasing collaborations every Friday until Christmas. I actually think that this is a pretty great idea. I’m not a huge Kanye fan, but I’ll admit — I’ve been looking for his new tracks every Friday. I haven’t been too crazy about the songs released thus far (even the one that has Kid Cudi included on the track). I feel like the songs are doing too much and take away from the potential that they could have had. However, the track releasted this Friday gives me some hope.
Well. Looks like I was right.
I’ve put Bon Iver’s original “Woods” along with Kanye’s new track that features the song so you can take a peek at both and decide which one you like more. For additional measure, I also put an additional Bon Iver song (“Flume”) which I particular love. Peter Gabriel did a cover of the song earlier this year which made me fall in love with the song once again:
