Earl Sweatshirt has announced “Sick!,” his latest album since 2018’s “Some Rap Songs.”
Supported by the single “Tabula Rasa” featuring Armand Hammer, the album is inspired by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns. The artist also revealed he was previously working on another album titled “The People Could Fly,” but changed directions upon realizing new restrictions in the wake of the pandemic.
Sweatshirt has also just announced a joint tour with Action Bronson that starts shortly after the album’s release on January 29th and goes through March. The ÑBA Leather World Tour will cover the U.S. and Canada before heading to Europe for summer festivals in June. Tickets are available now.
The rapper prefaced this release with single “2010”, a track that shows a more hopeful tone for Earl and highlights his artistic growth while staying true to his style.
“Sick!” by Earl Sweatshirt is scheduled for release Jan. 14, 2022. Preorder the album here.
