Tyler The Creator has been very busy preparing for the release of his fourth studio album Flower Boy, which will be available next week July 21st. In the past couple of weeks, the hip hop artist has been getting ready for his upcoming project by releasing a self-directed video for his first single “Who Dat Boy,” featuring A$AP Rocky and the audio for his second song “9/11/Mr. Lonely” featuring Steve Lacy and Frank Ocean. Well it seems like Tyler isn’t finish with the preparations because he recently released audio for his latest new track off Flower Boy called “Boredum,” featuring Rex Orange County and Anna Of The North with additional backing vocals from Corrine Bailey Rae.
The new track can be described as Tyler’s thoughts on wanting to escape the loneliness of boredom & hopes that someone can rescue him from its captivity. Tyler creates a sound that sounds like the listener has been doing nothing floating around inside their mind for hours in limbo. By combining that sound with melodies from Rex, Anna, & Corrine with lines from the young California MC like “My friends suck, fuck ‘em, I’m over ‘em/”Hi y’all, y’all ain’t hit me all day/What the fuck is the problem? Is it me?/’Cause I’m not solved, I’m… bored,” you get “Boredom” a song that displays the anxiety that people experiences when dealing with loneliness that can be caused from being bored.
Below you can listen to Tyler The Creator new single “Boredom” featuring Rex Orange County and Anna Of The North with additional backing vocals from Corrine Bailey Rae & prepare for the release of his brand new album Flower Boy this Friday July 21st.
