The album is set for release on April 1.
The Odd Future star has announced plans to play a one-off UK show at London's O2 Islington Academy on March 30. Tickets go on sale at 9am [GMT] on February 18.
He will also play headline shows in Paris and Berlin, with the gigs taking place in the middle of his headline tour of North America.
Tyler, The Creator recently worked on a song with teen popstar Miley Cyrus and producer Pharrell Williams.
Confirming the collaboration in a new interview, the former Disney star said: "I wrote this song with Mary J Blige, and Tyler the Creator heard it and said, 'I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.' And he killed it!"
