More details have emerged regarding Tyler the Creator’s highly anticipated new album Goblin – the follow up to Bastard which is due out on May 10th via XL Recordings.
Tyler published the deluxe edition cover art for his sophomore album via his Flickr page yesterday and a little while later he posted on his Twitter feed: "I Do Two Covers For Every Release Of Mine So, Thats The 2nd One For The Deluxe Edition. The Other One Is Standard [sic]."
The deluxe artwork, which reminds us of a classy mixture of british designer Ben Drury (ATP, Dizzee Rascal) and Düsseldorfs-own Mater Suspiria Vision, shows the contrasts between a witchy black/white and a bubble-gum pink world.
Tyler surely knows about state of the art marketing and as we learned earlier, he has just signed a one album deal with XL. So, it is no surprise to us that anyone and everyone wants to sign him now for his next album – Jay-Z and his Interscope alliance, as well as Mr. P Diddy would like to lay their hands on Tyler and his Odd Future Gang.
Stay tuned for more details.
