Kanye West has shared a new video for “Heaven And Hell,” one of the tracks on his 27-track 2021 album Donda.

The video follows figures dressed all in black with their faces covered by black material as they move around a shadowy and gloomy urban environment. Later, a figure presumed to be West appears in the middle of a swirling mass of bodies, which go on to form a slow-moving tornado high above the clouds.

The visuals end with still pictures of what appear to be battle scenes in apocalyptic landscapes. The Yeezy Gap logo is also superimposed over the last few images, highlighting the rapper’s new collaboration between his Yeezy clothing brand, high street chain Gap and fashion house Balenciaga.

The “Heaven And Hell” video closely follows a new teaser for the upcoming documentary trilogy jeen-yuhs, which was released yesterday (January 10). The first part of the three-part series will premiere in theaters on February 10 before arriving on Netflix a week later.

Following West over the course of 21 years, the doc will show the rap megastar in his early days, trying to break through in the music scene, and later, once he had established himself as a hip-hop icon.

Jeen-yuhs was directed by Coodie & Chike, who previously worked with West on the music videos for 2003’s “Through The Wire,” and the third version of “Jesus Walks.” An official synopsis reads: “Filmed over two decades, jeen-yuhs is an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye’s experience, showcasing both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist.”

West could also be set to headline this year’s Coachella Festival. Variety reports that he and Billie Eilish are being slated to top the bill at the event, which will take place over two weekends – April 15-17 and April 22-24.
