Leading up to the release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010, Kanye West’s 'G.O.O.D. Fridays' saw the music icon release a free new song every week for 15 weeks.
These tracks included 'Power (remix),' 'Monster,' 'Chain Heavy,' and an unmastered version of 'So Appalled.'
Well, it seems that six years on, Yeezy has decided to revive the time-honoured tradition, dropping two new tunes ahead of his new album SWISH - the release date for which is still unannounced.

And after the almost offensively shite 'Facts' from last week, these two seem like a serious return to form. There's a decidedly chilled, Late Registration vibe to the 'Real Friends', and second track 'No More Parties In LA' - though only released as a first verse and chorus for now - features the heir to hip-hop himself, Kendrick Lamar, and sounds glorious.
After some technical difficulty, the songs have been re-uploaded but can't be embedded, so if you fancy giving them a whirl, follow us to Soundcloud...
