After two different events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta this summer, Kanye West has announced a third Donda listening session. This will take place on August 26th in his hometown of Chicago at Soldier Field. Tickets go on sale on August 20th.
The second event, streamed live via Apple Music, featured a more elaborate stage show, several new songs, and significant updates to the tracks he debuted at the first listening session. When Donda did not arrive on the originally scheduled release date in July, representatives from West confirmed a new release date for August 6th. The album has still not been officially released.
In addition to previously shared features from JAY-Z, Pop Smoke, Lil Baby, and others, the updated Donda from the second livestream revealed new features from Weeknd, Jay Electronica, and Lox. The second livestream also included a long silent session that aired throughout the day in which West “finished the album.”
