Earl Sweatshirt announces second album details
It seems Earl Sweatshirt had a pretty intense night on twitter last night, as he revealed details of his forthcoming second album.
We have no title or release date yet, but he did reveal the producers involved with the project (Pharrell Williams, BadBadNotGood!) and the overall direction of the album.
It certainly sounds like it could be an interesting release, doesn't it?
You wanna know why im not in europe with the squad? Im finishing this album. Im just trying to make pretty music. Everyone whose favorite song off EARL was epar or whatever might be pretty bummed. Everyone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like “hey look im crazy” in their bio might be pretty bummed too. I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some. So. You know. Yeah. I hope i lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause i rapped about raping girls when i was 15. I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression. Christian Rich // The Neptunes // Tyler, The Creator // randomblackdude // Domo Genesis // Vince Staples // Tyler, The Creator // BBNG // Pharrell Williams // Thundercat // Ommas Keith // Frank Ocean // And Earl Sweatshirt. Thats the list of folks who did work on _____. Oh and samiyam and alchemist!!!!! Oh yeah and casey veggies!! And matt and syd. What if i got kidnapped and murdered by crazy nicaraguan killers before anyone could hear it. I'd be bummed. What if tom cruise killed me for being extra'd out. Its funny cause alchemist is also better at rapping than everyone. Its actually fucked up. Uzowuru just stopped me from dropping the album title.
Yesterday it was announced that Odd Future would be releasing their mixtape 'The Odd Future Tape Vol 2' on February 20th (a month before the last release date they gave us) and that Earl Sweatshirt wouldn't be on the mix. No surprises on both counts there. [read more]
