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.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
