Tyler, the Creator Announces New Album ‘IGOR’

Tyler, the Creator is ready to embark on a new era.

After dropping some cryptic teasers, the Odd Future rapper has announced his new album IGOR. Taking to social media, he revealed the title and May 17 release date, along with the cover art. The first cover features a black-and-white photo of Tyler against a pink backdrop, while the second is an illustrated portrait done by mixed-media artist Lewis Rossignol.

Last week, he shared a pair of teasers featuring two new tracks, “IGOR’S THEME” and “WHATSGOOD,” that are expected to appear on the project.

IGOR marks the follow-up to 2017’s Flower Boy, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album. Last November, Tyler dropped a six-track holiday EP, Music Inspired by Illumination & Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch.
