Kanye West started another livestream on Apple Music in the run-up to his Donda livestream event tonight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. He started playing the album around 10:27 p.m. Eastern when he was standing in the middle of a minimal set with a bed. You can find it on Apple Music.

The stream began with a continuous recording of West’s living quarters in the arena where West and others saw the album “finished”. On the opposite wall was a clock that counted down to 12.30 on Friday, August 6th. The stream later showed the stadium floor.
Donda was originally scheduled to be released on July 23rd, following the first livestream event on July 22nd. The album did not materialize, and West later announced through a sales representative that the album’s release date had been postponed to August 6th. It was also reported that West had taken temporary residence at the Atlanta venue where he was finalizing the album. A pre-order went live on the iTunes Store with a black box in place of artwork; it lists 24 untitled songs.
