It's being released on her birthday...

Kanye West has shared new song 'Donda', a tribute to his late mother.

The hip-hop icon was extremely close to his mother, Donda West, and was left devastated by her death in 2007.

Donda West was a professor of English at Clark Atlanta University, and was an inspirational figure during her son's life.

Out now, 'Donda' is a simple but effective salute to his mother, released on her birthday.

Calling her "my incredible mother" the new song features Donda West reciting KRS-1 lyrics.
