Kanye West says he has re-recorded his new song “Love Lockdown” after people posting feedback on his Web site complained about the original version.

 

      “Your prayers have been answered!! There’s a new version of ‘Love Lockdown’ coming,” he wrote. “We used new taiko drums, and I re-sung it. … It’s being mastered now.”

 

      The artist used the recent MTV VMA awards to debut the song, which features him crooning in a heavily Auto-Toned singing voice. A number of fans on Ye’s blog felt the Auto-Tone was too much.

 

      He responded: “If you don’t like Auto-Tune, too bad, ’cause I love it and have been using it since The College Dropout!!!”

 

      West’s new album, “808s & Heartbreak,” is scheduled to be released on Dec. 16. The performer is also working on beats for Jay-Z’s upcoming album “Blueprint 3.”

 

       On Oct. 2, West is due back in court to deal with his headline-making arrest at LAX airport on suspicion of vandalism. He and his road manager are accused of smashing camera equipment belonging to a paparazzi photographer.
