Tyler, the Creator just dropped his new album, IGOR.
The rapper and record producer unveiled his fifth full-length effort, out from Columbia Records, on Friday (May 17). The long-awaited follow-up to 2017's Flower Boy comes complete with tracks produced entirely by Tyler himself, with uncredited vocals by Kanye West on "Puppet," along with added vocals from Charlie Wilson, Blood Orange's Dev Hynes, and Playboi Carti on the synth- and piano-infused "Earfquake."
Tyler's latest creation, albeit unsupported by a lead single, features a slew of indelible earworms — "A Boy is a Gun," "I Don't Love You Anymore," and "Running Out of Time" arguably carry the record's impassioned sermons of relinquished romances to more around-the-way jams that give IGOR a down-to-earth sound that'll resonate with the hearts of Wolf Haley's loyal tribe of longtime listeners.
In related news, the California-born lyricist is expected to play the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York later this month, with another concert appearance at Delaware's Firefly Music Festival on June 21. (Details here.)
