When it comes to releasing music, nobody creates more hype than Kanye West. While he’s currently in the midst of promoting his new album Donda, with two stadium-sized listening parties in Atlanta and a third Thursday, August 26th at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ye has also announced the release of a limited edition Stem Player that will let you “customize any song.” What the heck is a Stem Player you ask? It’s a palm-sized soft silicone device created by the Yeezy Tech brand with electronics company Kano. Featuring four touch-sensitive light sliders which presumably let you control the device to customize any song on the Donda album.
