Kanye West Premieres

Closing a muddy weekend, Kanye West premieres new songs including "On Site" off of his forthcoming album, "Yeezus."

During a muddy weekend on Randall's Island in New York, the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival featured new songs from Kanye West's upcoming Yeezus album. 

'Ye chose to premiere a new song that many believe is titled "On Site" at the event. He also reportedly performed a separate new song, though the title is unknown. West also performed the much discussed "I Am a God" and the other recently premiered new joints, "Black Skinheads" and "New Slaves."

During his set, Kanye said he is thrilled to be making music but not thrilled about other aspects of the industry.

"I'm just happy to be making music and be able to perform that shit tonight," he told the crowd, according to a report by NME. "You know, with this album we ain’t dropped no single to radio. We ain’t got no big campaign. We ain’t even got no cover. We just made some real music."

He also added that he does not care about radio play or album sales. 

"Honestly, when I listen to the radio, that ain’t where I wanna be no more,” West added. “At this point I don't give a fuck about selling a million records. I just want to put out an album that you can rock to this summer."
