Earl Sweatshirt has been on a bit of a sabbatical with music. He cancelled his tour in July (although he still performed at the Metro and at Pitchfork the following day and I saw him at both venues, it was awesome) and hasn’t really dropped anything new since Doris. He did perform a new track at the show he had at the Metro and at Pitchfork, so it’s safe to say that at least there’s a new album sometime in the future.
This track “Rats” surfaced onto the internet a while ago, but the full version never came about. Recently someone sent it to Pigeons and Planes, and so now we have the full version of the track. This is some 2010 Earl, so fans of twisted and weird lyrical content will be happy with this release. Stream below.
