Following the announcement of his new project SICK! due on January 14th, 2022, via Tan Cressida / Warner Records, Los Angeles rapper Earl Sweatshirt shares the 10-song tracklist including a brand new single and visualizer “Titanic.” The Black Noi$e-produced track marks the third single arriving after “2010” and “Tabula Rasa (feat. Armand Hammer)” and their respective visuals.
Speaking about the new project, Earl says:
“SICK! is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns. Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (‘The People Could Fly’). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life.
People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. these songs are what happened when I would come up for air. Peace and love to Zelooperz the enigma, The Armand Hammer, and my good friends Alchemist and Black Noi$e. Peace and love to u.”
