Tyler, The Creator’s follow-up to 2017’s Flower Boy is set to arrive this Friday. Speculation about the rapper’s album first arose last month after Sony’s release schedule leaked online and indicated that a new project from the rapper was set to arrive this summer. The rapper dropped off two teasers, back-to-back, before announcing IGOR and its May 17th release date. He hasn’t released a single off of the project, nor has a tracklist been revealed, but it seems like we could count on Santigold being on the tracklist.

Tyler, The Creator’s released three visual teasers off of his project so far and today, he unleashed what appears to be a collaboration with Santigold. The song is titled, “New Magic Wand. The visual teaser shows Tyler, The Creator in a blonde wig performing in a desert in front of a crowd of five who are moshing before Tyler’s seen running off. In the caption, the rapper wrote, “best concert of all time, thanks santigold.”
Since the release of his last album, Tyler’s delivered a lot more music. Following Flower Boy, Tyler came through with several freestyles in 2017 and 2018 over songs from Playboi Carti, Jay-Z, Lil Baby, Kids See Ghosts, and more. Additionally, he dropped Music Inspired By Illumination & Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and also featured on the soundtrack for the 2018 remake of the Christmas film.
