It has been a long time waiting for the first track to surface from this highly anticipated album. All we have had before this was one of the best teaser videos we here at Hotcakes have ever experienced. That 50 seconds of video Justin Vernon released was an incredible bit of music.

Kanye West

Kanye West has announced that his new record, which is out November 22nd, “is and always was” My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Kanye has been hard at work on his new record along with plenty of help from an interesting ensemble of musicians.

Last month saw a first play of Monster a track which featured Jay Z, Rick Ross, Nicky Minaj and suprisingly Bon Iver.

Kanye has now made another of his collaborations with Justin Vernon available, Lost in the World heavily samples the Bon Iver track Woods and West reckons its a potential festival closer.

Bon Iver – Skinny Love

I have recently given Bon Iver a chance to entice my ears. I must admit, this is not normally my type of music, but decided to give the indie folk artist a go when I noticed its popularity on Hypemachine and LastFM. The album is average with each song not really standing out from the rest…apart from one. ‘Skinny Love’ is fantastic, perfect for a certain mood. You’ll know the mood when you listen to the song.
