Odd Future leader also announces tour dates

Tyler, The Creator has announced details regarding his upcoming third album "Wolf," releasing April 2.

The album, which was originally scheduled for release in May 2012, features three separate cover images: one featuring a close-up image of Tyler’s face, another touting two Tylers and a third painted by Los Angeles artist Mark Ryden. The video for the LP's first offering will release at 9 p.m. PST on Odd Future's official site.


 

On Feb. 14, Tyler released the video for the album's first single "Domo 23," in which he dons a blonde-dreadlock wig and takes on Domo Genesis in a pro-wrestling match. His Odd Future cohort Earl Sweatchirt serves as the match's referee.

Additionally, the Odd Future leader has announced his “Wolf” tour, which is scheduled to begin on March 12 in Columbus, Ohio. Tyler will make stops across America and will perform three overseas shows in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

During the tour, Tyler will showcase his limited Golf Wang clothing line at merchandise booths. Fans can buy bundle ticket packages that come with a deluxe edition of Wolf, a fold-out poster of the Ryder artwork, a “Wolf” calendar, a limited edition embroidered patch and a 24-page booklet featuring lyrics and artwork.

Tyler, The Creator is reportedly at work with Earl Sweatshirt on a collaborative album titled EarWolf. He will also star in the upcoming second season of Adult Swim’s Loiter Squad.
