Earl Sweatshirt to Kick Off 2022 with ‘Sick!’ U.S. Tour

25th December 2021 | Category: Concerts

Earl Sweatshirt has announced “Sick!,” his latest album since 2018’s “Some Rap Songs.”

Supported by the single “Tabula Rasa” featuring Armand Hammer, the album is inspired by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns. The artist also revealed he was previously working on another album titled “The People Could Fly,” but changed directions upon realizing new restrictions in the wake of the pandemic.

In a statement, Earl Sweatshirt said:

“Sick! is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns. Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life. People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air. Peace and love to Zelooperz the enigma, the Armand Hammer, and my good friends Alchemist and Black Noi$e. Peace and love to u.”

Sweatshirt has also just announced a joint tour with Action Bronson that starts shortly after the album’s release on January 29th and goes through March. The ÑBA Leather World Tour will cover the U.S. and Canada before heading to Europe for summer festivals in June. 

The rapper prefaced this release with single “2010”, a track that shows a more hopeful tone for Earl and highlights his artistic growth while staying true to his style.

“Sick!” by Earl Sweatshirt is scheduled for release Jan. 14, 2022.
