On Monday, August 8th ‘THE THRONE’S’ extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime album collaboration, WATCH THE THRONE, will be available worldwide exclusively on iTunes. On the same day, tickets will be made available to the public for the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of two of music’s greatest performers on one stage, with the WATCH THE THRONE TOUR. All fans who purchase their tickets online will receive a digital copy of the album. The Live Nation produced tour will begin on September 22nd in Detroit with 24 dates confirmed thus far.
AROUND THE WORLD
The longtime friends and music innovators inspired each other to new heights with their collaboration on WATCH THE THRONE recorded in person at various locations around the world. Over a year in the making and a truly global affair, the duo recorded in London and Bath in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Paris, and New York City. Though shrouded in secrecy, the album has already been heralded a ‘masterpiece’ by those who have heard it, and features production from The RZA, The Neptunes and Kanye’s longtime collaborator Mike Dean. The short list of featured vocals includes Frank Ocean, Beyoncé, Curtis Mayfield and Mr. Hudson. The lead track, “OTIS,” which premiered over New York radio waves on Wednesday, July 20th night during HOT 97’s FunkMaster Flex show, brilliantly weaves Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness.”
The production is classic Kanye West soul, with the two MCs trading couplets over a sample manipulated the way only West can. ‘Sounds so soulful, don’t you agree?” intones JAY-Z, and the two launch into a treatise on swagger, claiming their rightful place at the top. Since the track’s release, the flood of praise for the track has been nothing short of deafening. Entertainment Weekly declares the track “the most well-executed rap song of the year.” “Otis” can be streamed at watchthethrone.comotis.
Both JAY-Z and Kanye West have each appeared as guests on the other’s stage, and now they come together for never-before-seen performances not only from their collaboration, WATCH THE THRONE but also songs of their own.
