Hip-Hop will see Tyler, The Creator make a musical return this year, as the OFWGKTA rapper informally announces the release date for his highly anticipated album, Wolf. News of the project actually comes courtesy of Tyler’s friend and Odd Future confidant L-Boy, who creatively recorded the announcement while skydiving.

Tyler, The Creator’s Instagram also revealed that consumers will have a choice between three hilarious, albeit different album covers when Wolf is available for purchase April 2.

A 20-city tour will accompany the album’s release, spanning from March to April and will hit various cities throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.

Lastly, a new music video for a track, rumored to be titled “West Side Time,” is scheduled to release tonight at 9 pm PST/12 am EST. Wolf will be Tyler, The Creator’s first official album since 2011’s cult classic Goblin.
