Tyler, The Creator / The Estate Sale - A Deep Dive Into Call Me If You Get Lost

Two years after the release of his sixth studio album, Tyler, the Creator returns with an extended edition of Call Me If You Get Lost. The 3LP vinyl issue of The Estate Sale features a triple gatefold jacket with stunning embossed artwork and foil detailing. Inside, you can find the original Call Me If You Get Lost album plus 8 additional tracks, all pressed on Geneva Blue wax and a 28-page booklet, making it the perfect addition to any collector’s library.

Tyler, the Creator has been a leading voice in modern hip-hop for over a decade, consistently pushing boundaries, challenging expectations and venturing into other genres. CMIYGL cannot solely be considered a rap album - in fact, it draws from jazz, neo-soul, reggae and even a touch of bossa nova.

Although the bonus tracks did not make it onto the original release, Tyler felt that they deserved their own time in the spotlight. The Estate Sale features some of Tyler's most polished and introspective work to date and boasts an unmatched line-up of guest collaborators. Often artists will stick bonus tracks onto deluxe editions like unwanted chewing gum under a table, but The Estate Sale feels more like the epilogue to Tyler Baudelaire’s tales of love, life and luxury.

Similar to his previous album, IGOR, Tyler holds production rights. However this time he is joined by Jamie XX, Jay Versace and Madlib - are all experts in their field - who lend to the intrinsically slick and immersive soundscapes. The album’s aesthetics have often been compared to the works of Wes Anderson, and the cinematic arrangements and storytelling only lean into this.

DJ Drama returns as the album’s narrator and hype-man, but the standout features come from Vince Staples and A$AP Rocky. Rocky and Tyler hold a long-lasting friendship, and fans will be delighted to hear of their reunion on WHARF TALK. Despite this, Tyler’s solo tracks hold their own, with DOGTOOTH and SORRY NOT SORRY challenging some of Tyler’s previous greatest hits.
