Kanye West Remixed ‘The Canyons’ Trailer (Really), But the Original’s Still Stronger

Kanye West Remixed 'The Canyons' Trailer (Really), But the Original's Still Stronger

With the Bret Easton Ellis-penned, Paul Schrader-directed Hollywood satire “The Canyons” out in select theaters and available on VOD today, Kanye West has dropped his remixed cut of the film’s trailer, likely as a favor to help out his buddy Ellis, who was behind West’s violent promotional video for his latest album, “Yeezus.”

In collaboration with his multimedia company DONDA, West worked with Nate Brown on the re-editing of the trailer and created new music for it with Noah Goldstein. Subbing Brian Randazzo’s dubstep track “My Other Other Girl” for a decidedly more downbeat piano tinged score robs the trailer of its dreamy allure, but it’s still pretty stellar. Watch both trailers below, with the Kanye version first.
