According to a recent interview with The FADER, Tyler, the Creator is hard at work on his fourth solo album, though he admitted he has “no title, no theme, no release date.” What the Odd Future leader does have is a new song: Today, he took to the OF Tumblr to debut “Diaper”.
In an accompanying tweet, Tyler said the track is one that’s just been “laying around” for a while. That said, “Diaper” does demonstrate a noticeable development on the young MC’s part. Most notably, the production is a bit more involved, a kind of Timbaland-meets-Pharrell hodgepodge of clangy drums and hyperactive synths. Though Tyler’s flow still lacks overall maturity (like when he apes Drake’s flow toward the end), there’s an increased sense of confidence to be found.
Listen in below (via Miss Info). Let’s just hope “Diaper” isn’t the LP’s title track.
No doubt Tyler will preview this song and more when he embarks on a solo tour next month. Originally set for six dates, there’s now a total of 10 shows spread throughout December. Consult the full schedule below.
