Kanye West is commemorating his tour announcement with a brand new beat – and spot back on the subscription-based music streaming service, Tidal.

The rapper re-uploaded his seventh album The Life of Pablo on Tuesday night with a new six-minute reflective track titled “Saint Pablo.”

The track – then titled “Closest Thing to Einstein,” and debuted during a DJ set at Los Angeles’ 1Oak nightclub in late February – weighs in on the life events that contributed to his headlines during the time he wrote it, such as his Twitter rants, the revelation that his Yeezy clothing line dropped him $53 million into debt, how millions of people downloaded TLoP illegally and his exclusive Tidal deal.

“People trying to say I’m going crazy on Twitter,” West says on the 20th and final track about his Twitter rant and falling into debt. “My friends said to stay low. I guess it’s hard to decipher all of the deals, especially when you got family members on payroll. The media said it was outlandish spending. The media said ‘He’s way out of control.’ I just feel like I’m the only one not pretending. I’m not out of control. I’m just not in their control.”

He continues of his ‘100 Most Influential People’ Time Magazine cover, “I know I’m the most influential. That Time cover was just confirmation. This generation’s closest thing to Einstein, so don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”

TLoP was removed from Tidal in April after being sued for falsely leading subscribing fans to believe the $9.99/month streaming service was the only place they would be able to hear the LP – but it was also released for free on both Apple Music and Spotify.

West announced his 40-stop Saint Pablo tour Tuesday, which is set to kick off on Aug. 25 in Indianapolis.
