Welcome back to NOTEWRTHY, now in .txt and .docx formats
Today, let's talk about Tyler, the Creator. To be specific, what's coming next for him, both this year and further on.
After the surprise release of CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: The Estate Sale on the 31st of last month, everyone has been theorizing Tyler's next move with even more fervor than before, and for a few reasons. It's no secret that Tyler tends to release new albums on an every other year schedule, meaning that this year would be the year we get his next release. But with the release of this "deluxe" edition of his 2021 release, we don't really know what's coming next. For one, Tyler hasn't done a deluxe for an album before. He's no stranger to releasing singles in between projects, but we never see them added onto albums after the fact. This lead many, like myself, to wonder whether or not this counts as his big release for the year. Everything Tyler has done recently music-wise has been very uncharacteristic, and this only adds confusion. However, I think we are still getting a full project this year, or at the very least, early 2024.
As seen in the picture, we have all of Tyler's previous personas, including Flower Boy, Wolf, IGOR, and Tyler Baudelaire, his most recent. The interesting part is that the shirtless Tyler we see on the right is seen throughout the video removing the other personas, and the video ends with Shirtless beating the crap out of Baudelaire. This leads to 2 main theories: the first being that this is the "true" or "real" Tyler getting rid of his past and preparing for the new era he's about to start. The other theory is that this is the Tyler for the new era, not his real self. Regardless of which theory you think is more likely, they both lead to the hypothesis that we are still getting a new album soon because we see him quite literally killing the old him and starting a transformation. Either way, something is coming, and I'll be there for when it happens.
Also, there's another part regarding the "Real Tyler" theory. Along with seeing the real him getting rid of his past personas, this could signify the end of Tyler, the Creator, but not in the way that you might think.
People have started to theorize that this new era will come along side a name change from him as well. In a previous interview, Tyler said that he wants to start using his real name more, Tyler Okonma, meaning we might see that become his artist name in the near future.
While it's still too early to tell for sure what will happen, it is pretty clear that big things are coming. I know I don't speak for everyone, but this is pretty exciting.
Anyways, that's all for this week. See you next Saturday.
