Surprise! Following a week with a Kanye West-heavy news cycle – dominated by his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss politics and President Trump – we’ve been given a hugely unexpected gift to cap it all off: a new song. Posted by DJ Clark Kent on Twitter, and later retweeted by Kanye, it offers a download link for the track titled “XTCY.” Check it out below.

“XTCY” is the first release from Kanye since unveiling his divisive eighth studio album, ye. Complex notes that the new track may be an updated version of “Extacy,” a song that is listed in a rough draft of a tracklist Kanye shared back in May. The cover artwork is a photo of the Kardashian et al sisters at Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party.
