The Odd Future member took to Twitter to reveal the record’s title to fans, writing:


He also unveiled the video for his track ‘Chum’, which you can watch below. The video was directed by Hiro Murai.

In the piano-led song, he raps about his relationship with fellow Odd Future member Tyler, The Creator – pictured – as well as his father.

Earlier this year Earl Sweatshirt signed a deal with Columbia Records/Sony to have his own record label imprint, called Tan Cressida, on which ‘Doris’ will be released.

Of the follow-up to his 2010 debut, ‘Earl’, the teenager rapper has 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.”
