Tyler, The Creator has revealed that Justin Bieber rejected a song which he had written for him with fellow Odd Future cohort Frank Ocean.

The pair wrote a track for Bieber's 'Believe' album, but the teenage singer turned the track down.

Speaking to Billboard, Tyler explained that he still wants to work with Bieber.

He commented: "I've got so many beats and songs, but no one's giving me a chance yet. I want to take Justin Bieber for a month and just lock him up in a cage where we sit and make music. He's one of the most successful people in the world, but his music could be so much tighter."

Tyler added that he'd also like to write, direct and star in his own feature film, and named Wes Anderson as his favourite filmmaker.

Tyler, The Creator releases his new solo album 'Wolf' today (April 1). The LP is the follow-up to his 2011 effort 'Goblin' and includes contributions from several of his fellow Old Future members, including Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and Hodgy Beats.

Frank Ocean appears on album tracks 'Slater' and 'Bimmer'. The latter sees Ocean and Tyler team up with Stereolab singer Laetitia Sadier. Other names on the album include Pharrell, Erykah Badu and Trash Talk frontman Lee Spielman.

Odd Future's Frank Ocean, Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt will all be playing this summer's T In The Park in Balado, Kinross between July 12-14.
