Tyler, The Creator announces new album 'Flower Boy'

2017 is shaping up to be a busy year for Tyler, The Creator. Last week he released the self-directed video for his new A$AP Rocky-featuring song ‘Who Dat Boy’ as well as the audio for second new song ‘911/ Mr. Lonely,’ which feature Steve Lacy and Frank Ocean, respectively. These releases followed the announcement of Tyler's 6th Annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival as well as Tyler's two forthcoming television shows -- Nuts + Bolts on VICELAND, which will premiere on August 3rd, and the original animated show The Jellies on Adult Swim.

Now Tyler is back to announce that ‘Who Dat Boy’ and ‘911 / Mr. Lonely’ were the first pieces of music to emerge from his forthcoming full length Flower Boy. Due July 21, the 14-song album features two covers -- one designed by Tyler himself and the other by artist Eric White. It is only fitting that Tyler would commission White, whose paintings have been described by Leah Ollman of The Los Angeles Times as being "nostalgic and at the same time also vaguely futuristic, even dystopian," to visually articulate the world of Flower Boy.
