Last night (Dec. 31), Kanye West dopped "Only One," a previously unannounced collaboration with Paul McCartney. In the track, West speaks as his mother, the late Donda West, to his year-old daughter North. It is the first official release from West since his divisive 2013 album, Yeezus. During a press run last fall, West compared his forthcoming seventh solo album to Bruce Springsteen's Born In The U.S.A., a return to commercial dominance after 1982's slight Nebraska. What's a black Beatle, anyway?

Kanye posted the handwritten lyrics to "Only One" on his website:
