Earl Sweatshirt Enlists Tyler, The Creator, Pharrell, Frank Ocean, RZA, Mac Miller on ‘Doris’ (Updated)Posted by Andy B. under album preview
Earl Sweatshirt’s long-awaited debut album, ‘Doris,’ finally has a release date: August 20. The Odd Future lyricist shared the date on Twitter moments ago, complete with a screenshot of the tracklisting (sans guest features). The follow-up to Earl’s 2010 breakout mixtape, ‘EARL,’ ‘Doris’ has spawned three singles thus far — “Chum,” “Whoa” with Tyler, The Creator and the Mac Miller-assisted “Guild” — and is also expected to feature Pharrell, Frank Ocean, The Alchemist, Domo Genesis and Casey Veggies, among others.
Earl has described the album as:
Im just trying to make pretty music. Everyone whose favorite song off EARL was “epar” or whatever might be pretty bummed. Everyone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like ‘hey look im crazy’ in their bio might be pretty bummed too.
“I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some… I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters… Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression. I hope i lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me because i rapped about raping girls when i was 15.
UPDATE: Features added to the tracklisting.
