Earl Sweatshirt Performs Three New Songs at 2016 One Love Music Festival
Reuniting with Tyler, The Creator isn't all Earl Sweatshirt did at the One Love Music Festival in Calgary earlier this month, as attendees were treated to three new tracks from the rapper, who has seen an uptick in his releases as of late. In the clip above, Earl says, "This brings me to my favorite part of every show, when I start doing new shit," before rattling off verses from unreleased tracks in quick succession.
Earl's last album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, dropped in May of 2015, less than three years after his debut Doris. He may be shortening that release gap though, with the emergence of these new records. Just yesterday, Earl's feature on the Danny Brown album, "Really Doe" with Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul, dropped, while earlier this month, he let go of a new track titled "Death Whistles." On that track, Earl shouts out Edgar the Beatmaker, an alias of King Krule, leading many people to believe Krule produced the track. And last month Earl's Adult Swim collab with Knxwledge titled “Balance” was let loose.
While the releases from Earl spread out over a wide array of projects, it is nonetheless telling that his visibility has increased in recent months, with the fact that he's performing new material potentially indicative of something more. Peep the performance footage up above with specific lyrics audible only in bits in pieces, though Earl seems to stick to his verbally-dense verses, spouting off rhymes with measured precision.
