New Video: Kanye West's "Coldest Winter"

As of last month, Mr. West was officially back in the studio, working on material for his next album (says his blog). Although details about the name, and even genre of this future release are still fuzzy, we will more than likely have another classic on our hands very soon. Kanye put together his last masterpiece, 808s & Heartbreak, in a matter of a few weeks. With that in consideration, you could understand why one might be surprised to see a brand-new video single, featuring a song from the aforementioned 2008 release, blowing up all over the internet. Maybe he's trying to make sure he stays relevant in the lead-up to the next big project. Whatever the case, this video is pretty striking. It has an incredibly dark vibe, reminiscent of Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow or Kenneth Branagh's Frankenstein. It even features a gang of otherworldly J.K. Rowling-esque creatures chasing an attractive young woman through the woods. This is not at all what I would have expected for this one, but it does grab the viewer's attention, and that's half the battle. Check it out below.
