Today another track from it was unveiled and it's perhaps the biggest one on it: a brand new Kanye West track produced by Kanye himself and RZA - and it's really good. Watch the video or just stream it below.

Sharon Van Etten's Tramp was one of my early favourites this year but I've sort of lost touch with it, in large part due to my iPod dying and never having enough time to fill the new one properly.
