EXCLUSIVE: Earl Sweatshirt reveals new album ‘Doris’ will be released this July

We caught up with Earl and Tyler, the Creator in Sydney…

In town to perform the Australian leg of their ‘EarlWolf’ tour, we sat down with Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt to talk new music, upcoming tours and when we can expect the release of Earl’s much-anticipated album 'Doris.'

Speaking exclusively with MTV Australia, the Los Angeles-based rapper revealed that after months of delays, fans can finally expect the record this July.

“I’m wrapping everything up so it’s coming out in July,” Earl said. “I can’t wait for this sh*t to come out already so I can finally exhale.”

“You heard it here [on MTV] first,” Tyler added. “End of July!”

As for a solo tour to celebrate the new release, Earl says that while Australia “is so fun,” there are no plans to head back Down Under just yet.

“That would be sick,” Earl said. “But I have no idea.”

Three years since his controversial debut release, Earl’s follow-up album – which features guest appearances by the likes of Frank Ocean, Mac Miller, Pharrell Williams and his OFWGKTA cohort – is sure to be a monster of an album.
