While at the Big Chill music festival in August, the Louis Vuitton Don announced that he would be releasing “Lost in the World” as the next single from 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album. Though two months have already passed, Tiësto — who remixed the song earlier this year — is providing renewed hope.
“I spoke to Kanye a couple of weeks ago, and he told me it’s going to be his new single,” he told MTV News over the weekend at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, where he had just set the world record for largest DJ event, performing for 26,000 concertgoers.
In March, the Dutch DJ/producer debuted his “Lost in the World” remix at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami and has been spinning it ever since.
“The remix is going to come out a lot later than expected, which is cool for me, because I’ve been playing the track exclusively for the last five, six months, and it’s gone well in my set,” he said of his globetrotting gigs. “Especially in America, they really love that song. It’s like a journey anthem.”
With Kanye getting ready to embark on his Watch the Throne Tour alongside Jay-Z at the end of the month, there is no telling when West will have time to promote a “Lost in the World” single, but when it comes to ‘Ye, there is no telling.
