Odd Future keeps rumbling ahead of the crew’s third annual festival, this Saturday’s Camp Flow Gnaw Carnival. Yesterday, while Tyler, the Creator was announcing a merch blitz for the event, fellow OFWGKTA member Earl Sweatshirt was sharing a new song titled “45.” The tweet linking to the track reads, “ALCHEMIST / SWAMPMAN,” raising speculation that the Alchemist produced. In any event, the cinematic, ’70s-scented orchestration lays out a fine canvas for Sweatshirt’s hard-hitting rhymes, which include him memorably claiming, “I am not a child artist/ I raise the bar and hit a chin-up for a while on it.” Given that the track just cuts off after 77 seconds, it’s unclear if there’s more, but we may learn soon: When Sweatshirt canceled tour dates this summer, he said he planned to release a new record “while it’s still fresh.” This one, fairly unmoored from pop trends, could have a long shelf life.
