Earl Sweatshirt dropped links to three new tracks on Twitter last night. After asking for audience input on "soundcloud or youtube," the Los Angeles-born rapper released "Wind in My Sails," "bary," and "SKRT SKRT," all via Soundcloud. The three new songs don't seem to come from any upcoming album, but we love that he's keeping busy.
"Bary" is a remix of Kanye West's "Barry Bonds" and does not feature Earl rapping. Continuing in this manner, "SKRT SKRT" is a pure instrumental piece, with indistinct voices speaking behind a slow rolling music track that glows in the hazy distance. However, on "Wind in my Sails," Earl is in full-form, dropping deep, complex rhymes against a soulful background track.
These three tracks follow up Earl Sweatshirt's earlier January release, "Mirror." That track was produced by Samiyam and will appear on his next album, which is due out later this year, though no date or name have been announced yet.
In 2015, Earl released I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt to universal critical acclaim. The album was featured on a variety of outlets' top 50 albums of 2015. No follow up has been announced yet.
