Kanye West is slated to premiere the music video for his “Bound 2” selection off this year’s Yeezus album on “Ellen” Tuesday (November 19).
Confirmation of the single’s title and premiere came from ellentv.com.
In a promotional teaser for the video premiere, the television program also announced that the video is set to air exclusively on its website for the day of its release.
Elizabeth Banks and Mario Lopez are also slated to appear on the program the day of the premiere.
West has been critical of music video presentations in the past. In June, West criticized YouTube during a listening session.
“[I hate YouTube because] the player is so ugly, and it’s presented in such a terrible manner,” Kanye West said. “I want everything I do to be presented in an art context, as this is a form of sonic art.”
During that listening session, West also said he’s always been interested in the arts.
“I was an artist originally,” West said. “I have been in art school since I was 5 years old. I got scholarships to three art schools, Art Institute of Chicago, Saint Xavier, and the American Academy of Art, where I ended up going and I dropped out because I had an assignment where I was supposed to do an ink painting or something, and I would take two weeks to do it, and when I looked at my work, I just felt that I would never be one of the great visual artists of the world.”
