A few days ago, we were treated to a couple of Kanye West tracks recorded during the sessions for his 2013 album Yeezus that randomly appeared on the internet. Both of the songs had never been heard before, and though they carried all the traits of other Kanye songs from the era they were incredibly unfamiliar.

Now some more artifacts from Kanye's studio sessions have been dug up, but instead of lost treasures they are instantly recognizable demo-versions of his previous work.

First up is another recording from the Yeezus sessions, famously completed in a two-week binge at master-producer Rick Rubin's house mere days before the album release. The track in question is "I Am a God," the infamous song that gave birth to iconic lyrics like "Hurry up with my damn croissants." Though the album cut is minimal to begin with, the newfound demo version strips the song down even further, relying on an icy synth line that serves as the track's backbone.

The other new Kanye-demo to surface is an early, early version of the song "FML," which made it onto this year's album The Life of Pablo. Perhaps is the most noticeable change is the addition of a feature from Travis Scott, who does not appear in the finished version of the song at all. It also is built around an expansive sample that is omitted in the album version.

Stay tuned for more Kanye West-goodness.

In other music news, The Weeknd performed both of his new hit singles, "Starboy" and "False Alarm," live on the premiere of Saturday Night Live. Watch his sets right here.
