Last week, Kanye West (who legally changed his name to Ye in October 2021) made a surprise appearance at Travis Scott’s Utopia — Circus Maximus Tour and performed several classics from his discography. He was also joined by Bump and Ty Dolla Sign to perform “Vultures,” the title track of Ye and Ty Dolla Sign’s forthcoming joint album-turned-three-part-project.
As is the case with most everything Ye does, the Vultures rollout has been clunky, including several delays, But it appears that Vultures is set to release as most recently announced – Vultures Vol. 1 due out this Friday, February 9, the second volume on March 8, and the third volume on April 5 — because listening events are scheduled throughout this week.
First, they announced a Vultures listening event at Chicago’s United Center — which Ye said sold out in seven minutes — for Thursday, February 8. And Wednesday, February 7, Ye posted “VULTURES UBS ARENA NEW YORK 02 09 2024″ to his Instagram Story.
An official release was posted to UBS Arena’s official website, as seen below:
“In a celebration of music and artistry, the American hip hop superduo ¥$ – composed of the visionary rapper and producer YE (FKA Kanye West) and the immensely talented Ty Dolla Sign – is thrilled to announce the official album release party and listening experience for their debut studio album, Vultures, Volume 1.
