Titled ‘Feet of Clay’, Sweatshirt says the 7-track project is “a collection of observations and feelings recorded during the death throes of a crumbling empire.” It is due to arrive at midnight tonight (November 1).
Released via Warner Records in partnership with Earl’s label Tan Cressida, ‘Feet of Clay’ is largely produced by Sweatshirt, with some added production from The Alchemist and Ovrkast, and features guest spots from MAVI and Mach-Hommy.
‘Feet of Clay’ comes almost a year after the release of the Odd Future rapper’s last album, ‘Some Rap Songs’. Reviewing the album, NME‘s Sam Moore said that while it “may be a brief exercise, its ambition and the – largely successful – execution of its ideas demonstrate that the enigmatic Earl is as fascinating as ever.”
