The rap collective are officially putting out the new LP on March 19 in the UK and March 20 in the US but, according to fans on Twitter, copies of the record are already circulating around the internet.
Earlier today, Odd Future’s Tyler, The Creator revealed that he was worried that people “might hate” the album. “Everybody might go: ‘What the fuck is this? We wanted this, we wanted that.’ There we go,” he said. “We made an album we wanted to make. If everybody hates it, OK. We have an album we like.”
Previously, however, Tyler had claimed he was unconcerned about how well the album would do commercially and said he didn’t care how many copies it sold.
‘OF Tape Vol. 2’ will feature new material from Frank Ocean, Left Brain and The Internet as well as Tyler and Hodgy Beats. Initially, it had been thought that Earl Sweatshirt would be not be involved with the album as he was not mentioned in any of the LP’s tracklisting, but yesterday (March 16) a track from the record featuring the rapper, titled ‘Oldie’, was posted online. You can listen to the track here.
