Earl Sweatshirt has confirmed that he and his Odd Future bandmate Tyler, The Creator will record and release an album under their EarlWolf moniker.

Speaking in a new interview published in this week's NME, available digitally and on newsstands now, the rapper discusses both the release of his debut album, 'Doris', his admiration for Kanye West and the current state of Odd Future.

Discussing his work with Tyler as EarlWolf – the duo performed together at last month's Reading And Leeds Festivals and have also been supporting Eminem on tour – Sweatshirt said: "We'll do the record when we're ready to sit down for a month and a half and do it in one. It'd be shitty if it was spread out. That's how I want to do shit from now on; that's what I learned from doing 'Doris'. Trying to piece shit together that's hella spread out kinda sucks. You hit a lot more walls trying to make it sync."

He also insisted that things were "cool" with Odd Future, despite various members of the rap collective branching out to work on different projects, and said that he and his bandmates "still have the OF pillow to fall back on".

Earl Sweatshirt released 'Doris' last month. The record, which was his debut LP, subsequently charted at Number 23 in the Official UK Albums Chart. Speaking previously about the album, the rapper said: "I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some. So. You know. Yeah… I hope I lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause i rapped about raping girls when i was 15… I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters… Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression."
