Watch Tyler, The Creator play CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST live from Brooklyn
One of the rapper's first live shows in 18 months was recorded in full, and now, is able to watch for those with FOMO at home.
If you're a big fan of Tyler, The Creator, you've probably already listened to his new album CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST front to back more times than you can count - even though it came out just 10 days ago. It's another classic added to the Tyler discography, exploring the mid-point between the ferocity of his earlier albums - an album like Cherry Bomb, for example - with the polish and shine of his previous record IGOR, which took the rapper into a more dynamic, R&B-inspired direction.
You can definitely say the move pulled off, too. The mixtape-like energy of the record has ignited something in his fanbase; CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST selling more than any previous Tyler album in its first week, securing a #1 debut in the US - even with the heightened competition thanks to artists like Doja Cat, who shared her new album the same day - and finding itself nestled at the top of the charts everywhere else, including in Australia (where it debuted at #2, behind Olivia Rodrigo's unstoppable reign).
As mentioned, the album has probably been well and truly digested now, but there's something about seeing an album live that adds to the experience even more - and considering Tyler is all the way in the US, that's something unlikely to be experienced by Australian fans for a while now (well, until November in the earliest, considering he's one of the three headliners for this year's November edition of Splendour In The Grass).
In the US, however, things are beginning to re-emerge and re-open again, and Tyler The Creator isn't being left behind whatsoever. Over the last few days, the rapper has played a series of surprise CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST shows throughout the US, with fans able to score tickets via a text message sign-up that would drop the city, venue, date and time of the show on the same-day; often leading to a rush of fans running to line up and grab free tickets.
The last of these shows happened in New York - Brooklyn, more specifically - at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and luckily for our FOMO-induced selves, the whole show was recorded by Amazon Music, and now, is up on his YouTube to watch.
The hour-long show is high-energy and a lot of fun, going through highlights of CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST with little tidbits and revelations about the album in-between (including that ASAP Rocky was meant to feature on CORSO, but didn't hit Tyler back), as well as a couple of past classics thrown in there for good measure. It's one hell of a show; showcasing how the record comes to life on the live stage, in a way that hopefully, Australia will be able to experience soon.
We're not going to give too much away, but you can watch the whole show below, and underneath, find the tracklisting - so you at least know what songs may make up his set, when he ventures back down to Australia this November (provided that all things go well):
