Kanye West and Kid Cudi Premiere ‘Kids See Ghosts’ Album at Listening Party in California
Kanye West and Kid Cudi's highly-anticipated Kids See Ghosts album isn't officially out yet but on Thursday night (June 7), Kanye and Cudi treated friends and fans to a listening party and unveiled the full project.
Just like he did with Ye in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Kanye's latest listening party featured close friends and industry insiders huddled together around a bonfire in Santa Clarita, Calif., as Kids See Ghosts blasted from the speakers. Guests in attendance included Desiigner, YG, Lil Dicky, Makonnen, singer Ariana Grande, comedian Pete Davidson and many more.
Unfortunately for fans and those watching at home, things didn't get off to a good start. According to a June 8 report from Forbes, while a stream of the event was supposed to begin at 8 p.m. PST, music didn't stat playing until 10:45 p.m. PST due to delays and a crash of the WAV app, which the event was being streamed on.
But once the music did get started, many fans were in agreement about the quality of the album. Yeezy and Cudder continue the chemistry they've formed throughout their careers and offer a full-length continuation of their collaboration on the Ye track, "Ghost Town."
As expected, 'Ye also offered exclusive merchandise for those at the event. A departure from the neon colors of the Wyoming merch, the new collection includes a white hoodie with the Kids See Ghosts album cover printed on the back and "Kids See Ghost" written on the sleeve.
Kids See Ghosts is set to for an official release on June 8, although the album has yet to be made available on streaming services.
