The Life of Pablo, the new album from Kanye West, finally arrives later today after much anticipation, name changes and holdups, and Twitter meltdowns. Before we have a record chock-full of fresh Yeezy material, though, producer Nicolas Jaar is revisiting one of the MC’s 2013 tracks, “Blood on the Leaves”, with a new remix.

Jaar’s atmospheric reworking actually dates back to 2014, where it served as the backdrop for a short film honoring the artist Barbara Kruger. The Pippa Bianco-directed visual was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made its premiere at South By Southwest last year.

Check out the remix/short film below and/or here.
