Kanye West has teased fans by dropping an unreleased track made with James Blake while on the decks of a London Fashion Week event.

Clips of Kanye playing the track are circulating on social media with some fans hoping it’s a sign for a new ‘DONDA’ album. As it stands, there is no news of when this new work will be released.

London DJ Jordss, who played at the event and shared the decks with Kanye, wrote on Twitter: “I ended up doing a b2b with Kanye west while Naomi Campbell had a dance off to my set”.

Since the videos have spread, James Blake has confirmed that the track is “new” and not a sample of his track ‘Always’ which some had mistaken it as.

Blake tweets: “It’s my birthday and @kanyewest is playing tracks we made I’m good for presents thanks”.

Earlier that day, Kanye attended Burberry’s London Fashion Week runway show where he spoke with Skepta and sat front row with Stormzy.

Other British artists at the show include Griff, Labrinth and Pa Salieu.

On Sunday, Kanye posted on his Instagram Story, “London I know how you feel, I lost my queen too” in reference to the death of Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month compared to him divorcing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
