Stream Tyler, the Creator’s Divisive New Album ‘Wolf’
The Odd Future honcho's third album is now streaming on SoundCloud
Odd Future head honcho Tyler, the Creator’s third album will be released next Tuesday, but you can stream Wolf in its entirety right now on Odd Future’s SoundCloud. The album features the singles “Domo23″ and “IFHY” as well as “Treehome95,” which Tyler debuted on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Guests on the album include Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu, Earl Sweatshirt, Stereolab’s Lætitia Sadier and, of course, most of the OF crew.
The album has yet to have a song quite capture the public’s attention like “Yonkers,” the lead single off Tyler’s previous album Goblin. It may also prove to be his most divisive. Tom Breihan of Stereogum relays that the album fixates on the negative aspects of ubiquity, in doing so straying from the unique relatability that once made Tyler magnetic in the first place. The album also continues to push Tyler’s sound away from rap and into R&B, delving deeper into his own version of soul music, which is filtered down through artists he reveres like N.E.R.D., Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder.
