Tyler, The Creator Expands

UPDATE: Tyler, The Creator increases the anticipation for "Wolf" with dates in June, and an expanded run featuring Odd Future brother Earl Sweatshirt.

Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator has revealed three different images that serve as the cover art for his upcoming third album Wolf, releasing on April 2nd.

Revealing the covers on Instagram, the West Coast rapper said that he is "so nervous and excited but more scared" about releasing the LP. "I ALWAYS THINK WHAT IF EVERYONE HATES IT AND IM A FAILURE COME NEXT YEAR. SO TO KTT AND ALL THE OF FANS I LUB U," he wrote.

One cover features a close-up of Tyler's face, while another shows two Tylers: one wearing a "Wolf" baseball cap and the other posing with an inhaler in his hand. The third cover, an animated portrait by Mark Ryden, shows Tyler on a bicycle and an eyeball embedded in a tree trunk.

He also announced the "Wolf" tour on his website. Fans who purchase bundle tickets to the show will receive a copy of the deluxe version of the CD, which features a fold-out poster of the full album cover art designed by Ryden, a limited embroidered patch, a "Wolf" calendar and a 24-page booklet featuring lyrics and artwork. Buyers will also get a pair of exclusive socks.

The "Wolf" tour kicks off Columbus, Ohio's Newport Music Hall on March 12th. Stops on the trek include Brooklyn, New York, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Los Angeles, California. The tour concludes on April 11th at Portland, Oregon's Hawthorne Theatre.

Tyler, who recently collaborated with Miley Cyrus for her upcoming album, initially intended to release Wolf in May 2012 and then pushed it to November. He also had a joint LP in the works with Earl Sweatshirt titled EarWolf. He previously released Bastard and Goblin in 2009 and 2011, respectively.

Check out the covers below.

    My last paycheck was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do, Rich45.com_

    I fucking hate this guy...But that 2nd cover is easily the dopest album cover of the last 5 years.

      "But that 2nd cover is easily the dopest album cover of the last 5 years." Hell no, get the fuck out of here! The first 2 the covers are poor, very cheap, and juvenile. I've seen much better fanmade album covers. "I fucking hate this guy..." I highly do not take this statement seriously after reading that last part of your sentence. The 2nd album cover is literally a fucking joke. Furthermore, you must like Tyler in some way.

  • jakem415
    The first one would be the best cover, the second makes it seem like he doesnt care about the cd, and the third looks like an adult swim cartoon.
