It was a rocky road to DONDA—speckled with last-minute delays and controversial performances—but Kanye West's most anticipated album has finally hit streaming platforms.

In true Ye fashion, the record flaunts a staggering list of features, producers, and songwriters. Among them is Gesaffelstein, who is credited as a producer on three DONDA cuts.

The electronic music luminary famously contributed production to two songs on West's iconic 2013 album Yeezus, "Black Skinhead" and "Send It Up," both of which also feature French compatriots Daft Punk. The robots weren't included this time around, but Gesaffelstein held his own with some incredible work in the studio.

At a length of nearly nine minutes, "Jesus Lord" is dark and raw. Gesaffelstein is joined by a stable of legendary hip-hop producers here, as Mike Dean, Swizz Beatz, and West join forces for a gritty slow-burner.

Devoid of drums, "No Child Left Behind" (featuring Sunday Service and Vory) depends on haunting organs, a signature production technique of Gesaffelstein. The eerie single was used in a Beats commercial back in July, aired during Game 6 of the NBA Finals and starring America's fastest woman, Sha'Carri Richardson.

"Jesus Lord pt 2" continues the storyline of its predecessor with the fluid bars of fabled rapper Jay Electronica and veteran hip-hop group The LOX. This one clocks in at 11-and-a-half minutes, tying a bow on DONDA as its 27th and final track.
