The Site for Kanye’s New Song Has an ASCII Easter Egg

Despite accidentally uploading the wrong version to SoundCloud at first, Kanye West successfully released a new track this afternoon. It can also be heard over at, which has been overhauled as a simple landing page that plays the song. The only image on the page is one of young West playing keyboard.

You can check it out for yourself on any desktop browser, though the process of revealing a page’s source code varies by browser (on Chrome add “view-source:” before the URL).
