Tyler, The creator is booked to play close out this years Splendour in The Grass with Australia set to be one of the first to hear it live.
LA based, rapper, artist, designer, brand owner, actor and hero, Tyler, the Creator, has begun to tease his forthcoming record. With 'IGOR' still considered one of hip-hop's most ambitious efforts, the Renaissance man has gone to new levels over the past half decade of his career. He's booked to play close out this years Splendour in The Grass and the timing is looking perfect, with Australia set to be one of the first nations to hear the new album live.
The teasers have come in the form of new billboards circling around California. They read, 'CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST'. Calling the number then leads to a voice memo of Tyler and his mother. Fans have speculated that this is the official beginning to the rollout of his new album. Tyler has traditionally dropped an album every two years, which would mean he is on cycle for 2021. Adding to this, users on r/tylerthecreator have reported that they were given DMCA takedown notices when uploading the audio of the phone call saying they don't have permission to upload 'Momma Talk by Tyler the Creator', meaning its probably a snippet from a forthcoming track.
