Just this September, Kanye West released Cruel Summer, an album featuring artists from his G.O.O.D Music label. Of course, because West can't sit still for two seconds, there is already talk of a sequel. Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest and West's labelmate, recently told Complex that Cruel Winter was going to happen and he would feature on it. Despite this, West still hasn't confirmed that there will be a follow-up
And yet, today, a trailer for Cruel Winter's short film was uploaded to YouTube by Austin Christianson, the director of both Wiz Khalifa's "Cameras" video and a short promo for Rihanna's forthcoming album. His short, mysterious clip lasts only 54 seconds and depicts footage of a overcast wooded area with audio of George H.W. Bush's "New World Order" speech narrating the trailer. While it doesn't play any clips from the album, it does give hope to fans who want a sequel.
The video was designed by Kanye West's new company, DONDA, that also released the short-film companion to Cruel Summer that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
