Three years after Earl Sweatshirt released his critically acclaimed I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside, fans are still starving for new music. Alchemist took the anticipation up a notch on social media this week.

On Wednesday (October 3), a fan asked the veteran producer, “When that new Earl shit dropping?” Alchemist replied, “Listened to his new album again last nite that shit is a masterpiece.”

The release date for the project has yet to be announced.

The Odd Future alum has been keeping a relatively low profile since the January passing of his father, South African poet laureate Keorapetse Kgositsile.

He’s been gradually making his presence known again on the music front. A few weeks ago, the Doris mastermind jumped on Twitter and played some unreleased tracks in the background. In the since-deleted tweet, he stated, “The vibes… SRS COMING SOON THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER !!”

Earl will also be performing as part of the late Mac Miller’s upcoming charity concert.

On the other hand, Alchemist is on the boards once again for Curren$y and Freddie Gibb’s joint mixtape Fetti, which is expected to arrive on Halloween.
