Out of nowhere, Tyler, The Creator has returned.

At the top of the morning on Monday (March 27), the 32-year-old released his new song “Dogtooth,” the lead single for the upcoming deluxe edition of his 2021 album, CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.

Slated to release on Friday (March 31), CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: The Estate Sale will be “a collection of songs that didn’t make the original album,” Tyler explained in the caption of the “Dogtooth” music video.

“Dogtooth,” produced by Tyler himself, includes a glossy, bouncy instrumental coupled with gritty rap bars, much like all the original CMIYGL songs. Outlining the criteria of what it means to be a close friend to him, Tyler’s edginess and fascinating songwriting should excite fans for what’s to come at The Estate Sale.

She could ride my face, I don’t want nothin’ in return
Except for some her time and all her love, that’s my concern
I’m tryna buy my neighbor house and turn it to a yard
If you don’t know my grandma name, then we ain’t really dawgs, bitch

While the track list for The Estate Sale has yet to be confirmed, the vinyl for pre-sale on Tyler’s website shows some of its feature artists in the fine print. Along with listing the contributors for the primary rendition of the album like Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Wayne, rappers like YG, Vince Staples, and A$AP Rocky appear to land on the impending deluxe version.

CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST was a wild success for Tyler, The Creator. As his sixth official studio album, the LP took home the Grammy award for 2022 Best Rap Album, his second time receiving the honor after Igor did the same in 2020.

When it comes to triumphant albums like these, Tyler is no stranger to dropping additional songs from it months later. After Igor’s release in May 2019, he put out singles “GROUP B” and “Best Interest” in January 2020, both loosies that did not make the Igor tracklist.

So, instead of moving on to a new era, Tyler decided to feed his fans extra servings of CMIYGL two years later. And, considering the greatness of the 2021 project, it’s hard for fans to have any complaints about this result.
