Kanye West will share more tracks from his highly-anticipated new album Yeezus via large-scale projections tonight, just like he did two weeks ago when he unveiled "New Slaves" on buildings around the world.

According to his website, the new round of projections will take place in North America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand starting tonight and continuing through Saturday evening. Kanye has yet to reveal which songs or videos he'll have on display.

Of course, the material on Yeezus is less of a secret now, given the album leaked earlier today on file-sharing sites. Kanye has yet to comment on that, even though the album was reportedly kept under strict security. Yeezus is out June 18th on Def Jam.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
