Kanye West celebrates Easter with his fans by sharing a reworked version of The Life of Pablo‘s opening track “Ultralight Beam” called “Ultralight Prayer.”
The Chicago rapper tweeted a link to the song with a “Happy Easter” note attached.
“Ultralight Prayer” focuses more on the words from a prayer recited by Kirk Franklin with the help of Kelly Price’s powerful voice.
“If all God’s Children would get down on their knees and pray,” Franklin‘s “Ultralight Beam” prayer continues with the help of a choir. “And give up all those things that pull our hearts away / You will forgive our rogue and make us brand new again / But I won’t make it God if you let go of my hand / That’s why we need more [faith].”
The Life of Pablo has been self-described as a Gospel album and the project continues to be a work-in-progress with updates being made recently to album cuts “Famous” and “Wolves,” which saw the reinstatement of Sia and Vic Mensa’s original vocals, leaving Frank Ocean’s vocals on a track by itself.
The album is still available exclusively for streaming on TIDAL however, it’s not clear if “Ultralight Prayer” will be added to The Life of Pablo‘s tracklist.
