Kanye West debuts new song 'Water' at Coachella

Kanye West debuted brand new song Water at Coachella this Easter weekend on April 21.

The 41-year-old rapper gave the festival crowd a taste of what it’s like to attend one of his famous Sunday church services at his star-studded set on The Mountain hilltop at the festival in California, which saw him backed by his own gospel choir.

He opened with a series of covers and kicked off proceedings with his version of Stevie Wonder’s Do I Do into Kool & The Gang’s Summer Madness and The Gap Band’s Outstanding.

After powering through 25 songs, a mix of covers and renditions of his own hits, Kim Kardashian West’s husband surprised fans with the live debut of his new track, telling the crowd: “It’s called ‘Water’.”

The set also saw his regular collaborator and fellow Chicago native, Chance the Rapper, come out to rap his verse on Ultralight Beam, plus special guests included Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz,Teyana Taylor and DMX.

Kim was joined by family members, including her sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, who all came out to show their support and took to centre stage at one point.

And just like the usual service, their daughter North West, five, showed off her dance moves. 

Kanye - who also has Saint, three, Chicago, 14 months, and a fourth child on the way via surrogate with the 38-year-old reality star- had announced the festival appearance on a video posted to Kim's Twitter account earlier this month.

He said: "We'd like to make an announcement that we just booked another show. We will be doing Sunday Service, sunrise at Coachella.

"Only one date that mountain would be available to us: Easter Sunday at Coachella. That confirmation was confirmed last night.”
