Earl Sweatshirt will kick off 2022 with the release of a new project called Sick! The 10-song release is scheduled for January 14 via Tan Cressida and Warner Records. Today's announcement is accompanied by a new song called “Tabula Rasa,” featuring Billy Woods and Elucid of Armand Hammer. Check out the "Tabula Rasa" video below. The song and video follow "2010," Earl's first solo release since his 2019 project FEET OF CLAY.
In a statement, Earl said:
"Sick! is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns. Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life. People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air. Peace and love to Zelooperz the enigma, the Armand Hammer, and my good friends Alchemist and Black Noi$e. Peace and love to u."
