Originally mentioned in an interview with GQ on June 21st, 2014, “All Day” took all day to release, debuting 8 months later at the 2015 Brit Awards alongside grime artists Skepta, Novelist, Stormzy, Jammer, Krept & Konan, and “30 goons.”

The track features little-known Minnesota artist Allan Kingdom, the ever present Theophilus London, and Sir Paul McCartney for his third collaboration with Ye.

The melody of the song was inspired by a tune whistled by McCartney in a Parkinson Interview in 1999. This tune can be heard at the end of the song.

“All Day” was the centerpiece of 2014’s So Help Me God before that album was scrapped. It may have inspired the album’s second title, SWISH, but had been removed from the album by the time the first SWISH (finally called The Life Of Pablo) tracklist was released in January 2016.
