It’s been nearly two years since Tyler, The Creator dropped Flower Boy, but we won’t have to wait much longer to get his follow-up. As reported by Stereogum, Tyler shared some news on Twitter earlier today, announced a new album and giving its release date all at once: The album is called Igor, and it’ll be available on May 17, which is just a week from this Friday. It’s not quite as exciting as a true Beyoncé-drop, but 11 days is a reasonable wait. Anyway, Igor will also have an alternate cover featuring art from Lewis Rossignol, and Tyler’s tweets seem to be teasing a track called “Went Alien” that has a very cool bridge.


Beyond that, Tyler also shared a pair of teasers called “Igor’s Theme” and “WHATSGOOD,” and we’ll be getting the full tracks in a little over a week.
