Tyler, the Creator shares serene new track, ‘Boredom’

This post was originally published on this site

Tyler, the Creator has been an internet anomaly over the past week. Between his surprise announcement of a new studio album and then the unfortunate leaking of Scum Fuck Flower Boy, the absurdity has only continued, with an frenzy surrounding the rumor of the artist coming out coming out on the new record’s “Garden Boy.”

It’s safe to assume that Tyler has felt very little boredom lately, although, so goes the title of another new track off the forthcoming record, which repeats “Boredom” eight times over at the beginning of his first verse.

The serene track provides a beautiful showcase of the rapper’s growth, finding Tyler at what’s likely the most sonically mature point in his career. “Boredom” features Rex Orange County, Slow Hollows’ Austin Feinstein, Anna of the North who also was on Tyler’s relatively new “911/ Mr. Lonely,” and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Tyler’s new LP – his first since 2015’s Cherry Bomb – arrives July 21 via Columbia Records.
