New Music: Earl Sweatshirt – ‘Chum’

Earl Sweatshirt gets personal on his new song “Chum.” Over a piano-driven beat, Odd Future’s elusive member addresses his father’s absence (“It’s probably been 12 years since my father left”), thanks his groupmate Tyler, the Creator (“Searching for a big brother, Tyler was that”), and blasts the prying media who tracked him down (“You made my life harder and the ties between my mom and I strained and tightened”). Hear his confessions.
