Tyler, the Creator releases new single, “LUMBERJACK” for his upcoming record

Tyler, the Creator Shares New Song “Lumberjack”: Listen | Pitchfork

Tyler, the Creator released his new single “LUMBERJACK” along with an accompanying music video Wednesday morning in anticipation for his upcoming record.

At just over two minutes, “LUMBERJACK” is the first single Tyler has dropped since his most recent collaboration with Coca-Cola.

The track marks a major return to the rappers roots opting for a much hip-hop oriented sound, contrasting the pop influence he had for his last studio record IGOR. The music video is directed by Tyler under his Wolf Haley alias and primarily features a wintery atmosphere along with cozy-cabin imagery.

Much like teaser he released to his Instagram two days prior, the video ends abruptly with a small jingle chanting the name of his forthcoming record; CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.

Speaking of the title, the official album website, callmeifyougetlost.com, was also recently updated to reflect the new album teaser and single.

Calling the number listed on the website leads to a 20 second snippet of a track likely to appear on the album.

There is no word on an official release date for the album but it’s unlike Tyler to keep fans waiting too long.

Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott and Tyler, the Creator set to headline Day N Vegas

Day N Vegas released the official lineup for their upcoming 2021 festival on Monday morning, featuring major names headlining all three days.

After taking a year off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Day N Vegas is coming back with a bang securing three of the heaviest hitters in Hip-Hop for center stage.

The official post on their social media revealing the lineup simply stated, “we back.”

While concerts have returned in some states like Florida, Day N Vegas marks a hard push for the return of live festivals. For many artists this will be their first official return to live performances as a whole.

Kendrick Lamar, who has not performed since 2018, will be kicking off the festival on Nov. 12. For Day N Vegas, it seems he will be performing songs all the way “from Section.80 to DAMN.” as the byline states. Travis Scott and Tyler, the Creator will be headlining the following 13 and 14 respectively.

Other notable performers include the likes of fellow TDE member Isiah Rashad, SZA, Thundercat, Lil Baby, Dababy, Doja Cat, Earl Sweatshirt, Ari Lennox, Freddie Gibbs and many more.

Nevada began vaccination rollout in Dec. 2020 and since then has delivered over a million vaccinations have been administered in Clark County alone. Furthermore, fully-vaccinated individuals in Nevada have not been required to wear a mask in most indoor and outdoor locations since May.

With that being said, Nevada is rated moderate in terms of risk and remains at tier 3, which allows some businesses to open with modifications.

Regardless, tickets for Day N Vegas will be available for pre-sale Friday, Jun 18 at 12 o’clock PT.

Release Roundup: Japanese Breakfast’s Jubilee

Japanese Breakfast: Jubilee Album Review | Pitchfork

Japanese Breakfast, the solo musical project of Michelle Zauner, released her third studio album Jubilee this Friday.

Jubilee features a lot of the same quirks found on Zauner’s previous record, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, while still featuring enough small departures that mange to make it still feel fresh and exciting.

As the title would suggest the record is meant to have a more happy celebratory tone. If that wasn’t enough in a tweet announcing the record Zauner herself said the album was about “joy.”

Japanese Breakfast is known for her self-directed visuals, the music video for her track “Boyish” gaining a ton of traction following its release.

So it’s no surprise this record would come with a shmorgishborg of its own music videos all of which are once again directed and written by Zauner herself.

As if the singer couldn’t keep anymore busy, just a few months before the release of Jubilee, Zauner released her first book Crying in H Mart: A Memoir. A book named after a viral essay the multifaceted singer wrote in 2018 for the New Yorker.

Jubilee is now available for streaming:
