Earl Sweatshirt Says New Album Shows Progression
Nothing demonstrates maturation from an artist more than the following from Earl Sweatshirt. “I hope I lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause I rapped about raping girls when I was 15.” Indeed, Earl. Indeed. Over the weekend Earl hit Twitter to reveal several details about his forthcoming album, which will be released via his label through Sony. Earl stopped short of dropping the name of his new LP, but did say that the album may cost him some fans, specifically those who liked his more menacing and violent records. Earl also said he’s finishing the album now, and that’s the reason is sitting out of the current Odd Future shows in Europe, “You wanna know why I’m not in europe with the squad? I’m finishing this album. I’m just trying to make pretty music,” he wrote.
Earl also said that guests on the album include Tyler, The Creator, Alchemist, yesiam, Christian Rich, The Neptunes, Casey Veggies, Frank Ocean, and more. Earl seems pretty happy with the LP thus far adding, “I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression.”
