Now, the forthcoming project’s tracklist has been revealed courtesy of Apple Music, containing 15 songs. In addition to the aforementioned record, two other songs from the album feature collaborations: “Ontheway!” with Standing On the Corner, and “Playing Possum” with Earl Sweatshirt’s parents, Cheryl Harris and the late South African poet Keorapetse Kgositsile.
Pitchfork points out that Earl and his dad were “roughly a month out from from a reunion that would facilitate a long-anticipated conversation,” prior to Kgositsile’s death last January, according to a press release for Some Rap Songs.
“Me and my dad had a relationship that’s not uncommon for people to have with their fathers, which is a non-perfect one,” Earl said in a statement. “Talking to him is symbolic and non-symbolic, but it’s literally closure for my childhood. Not getting to have that moment left me to figure out a lot with my damn self.”
Peep the full tracklist below and have a listen to Some Rap Songs via Apple Music beginning November 30. For more, here’s why Earl Sweatshirt’s new album could be his long-awaited classic.
