Kanye West hosted a runway show at New York Fashion Week to introduce season two of his fashion line with Adidas. He also premiered a new track reportedly called ‘Fade’.

The bass-heavy song samples 1970s Motown outfit The Undisputed Truth (‘I’m Losing You’) and Hardrive’s club anthem ‘Deep Inside’. It also features guest appearances from Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone and highlights a decided shift from his relentless and aggressive single ‘All Day’ and his melodic number for his late mother “Only One”.

The track was revealed in a similar fashion to Kanye's last Adidas launch event, the artist unveiling his track 'Wolves' which features Sia and rising rapper Vic Mensa.

Lorde, Drake, Miguel, Courtney Love, Pusha T, and Anna Wintour attended the launch of the Yeezy Season 2's.

Kanye's forthcoming album SWISH doesn't have a release date yet.

Ty Dolla Sign spent a couple of days in the studio with Kanye earlier this year and apparently recorded a number of tracks, as well as featuring on West's 'Only One' and '45 Seconds'. Check out our interview with TY Dolla $ign here and hear about his experience working with Mr West.

After revealing that he's apparently intending to run for President in 2020, a number of people responded to Kanye West, including The White House, Donald Trump and Justin Timberlake after the rapper claimed that he'd seen the singer cry after not winning an award.
