tyler creators igor altered pitch listen tyler the creator

Tyler, the Creator‘s sixth album, IGOR was marked by sincerity and vulnerability. Where in previous studio albums he had lowered his voice to produce a menacing quality, with IGOR Tyler took the pitch right up to give voice to the complexities of modern heart-break and age-old demons.

This proved to be a hugely effective sonic strategy. Nevertheless, one Reddit user adjusted the pitch on the album and the result will give IGOR fans pause. Take a listen to how tracks like “EARFQUAKE” and particularly the line “Don’t leave/ It’s my fault” hit at the lower pitch. 

Given Tyler’s well-established perfectionism, he might not be too pleased with the pitch alternations but it’s well worth a listen.
