Kanye West Debuts New Songs At Governors Ball

NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West closed the three-day Governors Ball on New York’s Randall’s Island with a set that featured his familiar hits as well as a batch of new, darker tracks from his upcoming album.

West kicked off his set Sunday night with the song “Black Skinhead,” with flashing visuals in the background, including the words “not for sale.” He later performed “New Slaves.” Both tracks will appear on “Yeezus,” his sixth album, which comes out June 18.

The crowd responded nicely to some of those songs, but it was lukewarm compared with West’s performances of his well-known hits, including “Stronger,” ”Good Life,” ”Jesus Walks” and “All Falls Down.”

Guns N’ Roses headlined Governors Ball on Saturday. Kings of Leon was to headline Friday but pushed their performance to Saturday because of the bad weather.
