Tyler, The Creator Releases New "SIDE STREET" Teaser
Concluding the visual with the phrase, “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.”
UPDATE (June 15, 2021): Last week, Tyler, The Creator put up a billboard along Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard with a phone number directing callers to a vague recorded message, which is reportedly between him and his mother.
Now, the artist has unveiled a 42-second retro-inspired teaser titled “SIDE STREET” featuring him making out with a girl while holding a dog in front of his bubblegum pink car. He then gives the dog back to the girl and drives away while Taco Bennett enters the scene asking, “Who the f*ck was that?.” She responds, “No one.” The visual ends with the same phrase as seen on the billboard, “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.”
Could “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST” be the title of Tyler’s upcoming album? Stay tuned while we wait for more information.
ORIGINAL STORY (June 11, 2021): It’s been two years since Tyler, The Creator’s last album, IGOR. Thankfully, fans don’t have to wait any longer. Earlier this week, a new billboard along Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles appeared, promoting the phone number 1-855-444-8888 and the words, “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.”
When dialed, you will hear a recorded message of a conversation supposedly between Tyler and his mother playing over what seems to be music from the upcoming album. The majority of the recording is of the mother talking about how much she loves her son, stating that she will “stand in front of a bullet, on God, over this one.” When she asks, “Am I lying?,” a voice that sounds just like Tyler’s answers, “You have no reason to.”
One fan tried to upload the audio on Instagram but was immediately warned by the app that they did not have permission to do so. The warning read: “We’ve removed the video that you posted at 3:15 pm on June 9, 2021 because it included the following content: MOMMA TALK by Tyler, the Creator.” “MOMMA TALK” is the first confirmed single of Tyler, The Creator’s new album. It’s probably an interlude or an intro but I’m excited regardless,” the fan tweeted.
Tyler has not yet responded to the news. Stay tuned while we wait for more details to surface.
