A new album from Tyler, The Creator is set to arrive next week.

It seems the billboards, hotlines, and new music were, in fact, signaling an incoming album from Tyler, The Creator.

Officially announced via press release this morning, Call Me If You Get Lost, the sixth studio album from the rapper and producer, is set to arrive next Friday, June 25th. The project’s booming lead single, “LUMBERJACK,” was released yesterday alongside a hallmark self-directed audiovisual bomb. That glimpse followed a plush teaser with a cameo from Taco in a new album campaign that has already featured sprawling roadside ads and a dedicated number that plays excerpts from the project when you call (and will continue to preview new bits from the album until release.) Call Me If You Get Lost will, also, of course, have a fresh batch of merch from the artist, including several CD and cassette box sets with posters and tees, but strangely no vinyl options (yet?) You can pre-order copies here.

Call Me If You Get Lost is the follow-up to Tyler, The Creator’s critically (and institutionally) praised 2019 album, IGOR. That album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s 200 chart and went on to top albums from Dreamville, Cordae, 21 Savage, and Meek Mill, to secure the award for “Best Rap Album” (the first of his career,) at the 62nd annual Grammys. Tyler had previously been nominated for “Best Rap Album” in 2017 for Flower Boy and in 2012 for “Album of The Year” for his contribution to Frank Ocean’s debut album, Channel Orange, but neither project ended up taking home the award for their respective categories.

You can revisit the first single from the new Tyler, The Creator album below. Hold tight for Call Me If You Get Lost to land next week.
