Tyler, The Creator has shared a new track called ‘Rose Tinted Cheeks’, which contains a reference to the movie 20th Century Women.
Now he has uploaded ‘Rose Tinted Cheeks’ to YouTube. Listen below.
It includes the lines: “They Black Flag we AF / we BF as AF / but they won’t get that / that’s that 20 Century Women reference / you so hard to get like intricate metaphors”, which refer to a scene in 20th Century Women where Annette Bening and Billy Crudup’s characters dance to songs by Black Flag and so-called “art f*gs” Talking Heads.
Taking to Twitter, Tyler described ‘Rose Tinted Cheeks’ as “a song I never finished or went back to” while working on recent album Flower Boy.
“I’ve had [it] laying around and figured I just put it out as the demo/ rough draft,” he explained. “It is not really mixed or anything.”
Tyler also noted how the vocals for the hook would have been re-recorded by “a girl who could actually sing”, saying that he “wishes” he had finished the track.
Describing it as a “throwaway song”. ‘Okra’ included the lyrics: “Tell Tim Chalamet to come get at me / Skin glowin’, clear of acne”.
Later, Call Me By Your Name star Chalamet responded by retweeting a meme that a fan posted about what his reaction would likely be to the shout-out. It included photos of the actor falling out of his chair.
