Earl Sweatshirt Recruits Frank Ocean, RZA & Tyler, The Creator For New Album, ‘Doris’

In the last week, Earl Sweatshirt has managed to take away much of the mystery behind his highly anticipated album Doris. He’s revealed the release date (August 20), the cover art, the tracklist and four songs from the record. Now, he’s shared the complete list of guest stars that lend their voice to his upcoming release.

On the follow-up to his 2010 debut mixtape, Earl, the youngest member of Odd Future shares the mic with a few of his bandmates including Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis and Tyler, The Creator, who appears on two tracks including the recently released, “Whoa.” (Watch the clip below.)

Earl also teams up with L.A. based rappers Mac Miller, Vince Staples and Casey Veggies, who appear on a song called, “Hive.”

Wu-Tang veteran, RZA, earns a contributing producer credit on the 15-track LP. And keeping with his epic comeback, Pharrell is listed as the producer of a track called “Burgundy.”

According to a press release, the album was named after Earl’s late grandmother and displays “a stronger artistic focus and a more mature outlook on life” than his previous work, which was released before he attended boarding school in Samoa where his mom reportedly sent him after hearing his evil rhymes.
