Kanye West released his divisive new album ye last week after debuting it at a Wyoming listening party, and this week he “brings Wyoming” to Chicago, Miami and Brooklyn. His website advertises #ProjectWyoming events in Chicago and Miami today (6/6) at 6 PM local time, and one in Brooklyn on Thursday (6/7). There are RSVP links for the Chicago and Miami events but not the Brooklyn one.
He hasn’t said what these events will involve, but as Stereogum points out, it seems unlikely that Kanye will be at these events, considering the Miami and Chicago ones happen at around the same time and the Brooklyn one is probably the same day as the LA listening party for Kanye and Kid Cudi’s collaborative album as Kids See Ghosts, which comes out Friday (6/8). (That’s the newly-revealed album artwork above.)
UPDATE: Pitchfork points out that YesJulz, who manages G.O.O.D. Music artist 070 Shake and runs the 1AM company (that’s putting on these events), shed some light via Twitter on what these events will involve:
Ye wants people to experience the album the same way the 400 people in Wyoming did.
Open air, around a fire, with stadium quality sound.
That’s what #ProjectWyoming is about. Stripping down to the basics and enjoying nature & GOOD company.
These are merch pop up bonfires🔥
