Watch the Video for Kanye West and Travis Scott’s New Track ‘Wash Us in the Blood’

Kanye West and Travis Scott have teamed up for a new song called ‘Wash Us in the Blood’, the first taste from West’s upcoming studio album, God’s Country. The new single arrives with a visual directed by previous West collaborator Arthur Jafa. The video includes footage from recent protests, as well as shots from from the rapper’s Saint Pablo Tour and Sunday Service rehearsals. Check it out below.

Sonically, ‘Wash Us in the Blood’ confirms rumours that West’s new album would call back the experimental leanings of Yeezus, though with more pertinent subject matter. Dropping as part of the rapper’s #WESTDAYEVER campaign and teased back in April in an interview with GQ, the track sees the rapper discussing the death penalty: “Thirty states still execute/ Thou shall not kill, I shall not spill, Nextels at the rendezvous,” he raps.

God’s Country will be the follow-up to the rapper’s 2019 gospel album, Jesus Is King, and Sunday Service Choir’s companion LP Jesus Is Born. Speaking of his new album, West said: “I was thinking of not rapping again, because I rapped for the devil so long that I didn’t even know how to rap for God. Then one of my pastors told me, ‘My son just said that he would want a rap album about Jesus from Kanye West.’ He didn’t say, ‘Kanye West, you should do this,’ or ‘you need to do this.’ He just told me something that a child said. And that one thing made the difference.”

Last week, West shared a teaser for a new CGI animated series based upon Kids See Ghosts, his 2018 collaborative project with Kid Cudi, directed by Takashi Murakami.
