Listen: Kanye West's remake of The-Dream's 'Bed' is 17 minutes long

17 minutes long. Seriously.

We've just been blessed with 17 minutes and 19 seconds of new Kanye.

If you're a fan of The-Dream's original version of "Bed," get ready for it to be Kanye'd! Don't call it a comeback, or a remix, call it (all caps everything) "BED YEEZY SEASON 5 (FT. THE DREAM)."

That's right, it's a wholly reimagined take on The-Dream's track that lasts almost as long as a sitcom pilot. Fans speculate the track's title comes from Ye's choice to play The-Dream's decade-old demo of J.Holiday's "Bed" at last month's Yeezy Season 5 debut during New York Fashion Week. While it doesn't seem to have any new Yeezy vocals, it's at least something.

Seriously, just play this as background music and instantly turn any location into a fashion show! While we've received no other new Yeezy news, the track does seem to coincide with The-Dream's scheduled Facebook Live Q&A set for sometime today.
