808s & Heartbreak is Kanye West’s fourth studio album, released on November 24th, 2008, and it was a base breaker as far as fans were concerned. The album was formed off the back of an extremely difficult time for West; his mother died due to complications after cosmetic surgery, his relationship with on-and-off again girlfriend/fiancé Alexis Phifer finally ended for good, and Kanye was struggling to adapt to his celebrity status, often being criticized from the media  . It was just what was in my heart. The type of ideas that it was coming up with, the melodies that were in me - what was in me I couldn’t stop. The album is heavily influenced by 1980s synthpop and electropop.

Kanye West’s fourth studio album raised an entire generation: wide-eyed child actors, hardened Atlanta drug dealers, elusive bedroom producers. Somehow, the Chicago artist’s most experimental and idiosyncratic work became his most seminal. Kanye West Almost Produced a Paul McCartney Album. Kanye's Overshadowing of Historic Bill Signing Irks Music Industry. The First Time: Juice WRLD. 808s & Heartbreak was also the culmination of Kanye setting specific sonic parameters, while embracing his more melodic inclinations. Define your palate and work with limitations. There it is in the title: 808s and Heartbreaks, you know? Bhasker said. So it’s 808s and the heartbreak, I don’t know if you know, is a term for the effect that’s on the vocal, which is distortion, octave and Auto-Tune. So that’s called ‘the heartbreak. That’s the sound of heartbreak.

Kanye West returns with his fourth album 808s & HEARTBREAK. His highly anticipated new album set for release on November 25th, featuring the heart pounding first single LOVE LOCKDOWN which premiered live for the first time on the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. LOVE LOCKDOWN quickly exploded at radio with the video premiering nationwide on the Ellen Degeneres show. Heartless," the second single, is next up to hit the airwaves further amplifying the story behind the musical direction for 808s & HEARTBREAK. Disc: 1. 1. Say You Will.

The guy was already a ball of conflicts and contradictions- hand-wringing over his consumption one moment, boasting about his wealth the next. He's someone as driven by ego as he is plagued by doubt- in other words, a wholly human pop star. This year, however, was particularly rough: He and his fiancée broke up, and his mother, Donda West- who alone raised Kanye from the age of three- died from complications after cosmetic surgery. He's made 808s and Heartbreak, which as the title hints is an introspective, minimal electro-pop record steeped in regret, pain, and even more self-examination than a typical Kanye West album. And as you've no doubt heard, on 808s West sings everything through Auto-Tune rather than rapping, a decision that for some has made this record a non-starter.

24), Kanye West released his groundbreaking "808s & Heartbreak" singing album, which was met with polarizing backlash at the time. Relive the classic album counting down the project's 12 songs. Kanye enlisted pop-artist Kaws for the album’s cover and used harrowing synths over his powerful 808 drum machine, juxtaposing eccentric sonics such as monk choirs and Japanese Taiko drums combined with auto-tune, creating a sound described as pop-art by the Yeezus artist himself. The critically polarizing album celebrates its ninth birthday Friday (Nov. 24) with 12 icy tracks spanning 61 minutes of agonizing concepts.

You’ve probably already heard the leak tracks from Kanye West’s new album, 808s & Heartbreak. Whether or not you like his new musical approach, the album will be dropping next week on November 24th, 2008.

Kanye‘s songwriting takes center stage on the Kid Cudi-assisted Welcome To Heartbreak, as he laments his drive for fortune and fame costing him everything else in his life, specifically building a family. Sampling may have been set aside, but ‘Ye’s production here – between the opening cello and the piano throughout – it’s as moving as anything he’s ever done. Heartless is the most evocative song in ‘Ye‘s artistic evolution, and not just because it is one of the few instances in which he actually raps. If anything, this album proves once and for all what an incredible artist Kanye West is. Being that 808’s & Heartbreak is a completely different beast than his past work, it is impossible to compare. But consider how drastically different this is than his debut, and that he still pulled it off very easily. Few artists can stray so far from home and succeed.
