The film followed the Odd Future rapper as he made his 2015 album 'Cherry Bomb'

A new trailer for the forthcoming Tyler, the Creator documentary has been released.

Produced by Illegal Civilisation Cinema, the new film follows the Odd Future founder for a behind-the-scenes look at how he made his fourth studio album, 2015’s ‘Cherry Bomb’.

The trailer sees various shots of Tyler in the studio, at times collaborating with a number of high-profile guests who featured on ‘Cherry Bomb’. The likes of Kanye West (who compares Tyler to director Spike Jonze), Lil Wayne, Pharrell and ScHoolboy Q can all be seen in the trailer, with all of those artists going on to feature on songs from Tyler’s most recent album. Regular touring partner A$AP Rocky is also seen backstage with Tyler at one point prior to a show.

Tyler is still barred from the UK after current Prime Minister Theresa May banned him from entering the country for three-to-five years in August 2015, purportedly because of the lyrical content of his 2009 debut ‘Bastard’ and 2011 follow-up ‘Goblin’.

Having made the decision – which Tyler likened to being compared with “a terrorist” – while she was serving as Home Secretary, May became the subject of a song by the 25-year-old back in June.Tell Theresa May to let me in,” he rapped on ‘My Ego’. “I been going in since 2010 / It gotta be the colour of my skin.”
