The existence of a new project from Tyler was revealed in April in a financial statement from Sony Music, Tyler's label. An unreleased project from Tyler is listed under the section "Noteworthy projects for the quarter ending June 30, 2019." Projects from Calvin Harris and Mark Ronson are also named.
