Kanye West Performs ‘New Slaves’ & ‘Blood On The Leaves’ On ‘Later… With Jools Holland’

‘Bound 2′ wasn’t the only ‘Yeezus’ track Kanye West performed during his rare appearance on BBC’s late-night music show, ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ last week; with a little help from Charlie Wilson, Yeezy also gave emphatic renditions of fellow album cuts ‘New Slaves’ and ‘Blood On The Leaves.’

For ‘New Slaves,’ the synths and kicks were stripped to give way for a chilling piano sequence, which definitely lent to the song’s powerful racial message. It also seemed fitting that Ye censored himself on ‘Bound 2,’ but kept the N-bombs in full effect here. Though not as big a sonic makeover, ‘Blood On The Leaves’ received scratching and added vocal effects.

If there’s one thing to take away from Kanye’s performance on ‘Jools Holland’ — aside from enjoying a brilliant spectacle, of course — it’s that Charlie Wilson needs a spot on that ‘Yeezus’ tour. Stat.
