Tyler began teasing Call Me If You Get Lost on 9 June, with a promotional billboard spotted in different areas across Los Angeles. The billboard included a phone number, 1 (855) 444-8888. When called, a recorded conversation between Tyler and his mother is played, which could serve as a snippet from an unreleased song. Soon after the billboard was spotted, a website of the same name was discovered, followed by billboards in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Sydney, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. He then shared a teaser video called Side Street before releasing Lumberjack and its video that he directed under one of his tried and tested pseudonyms, Wolf Haley.
The upcoming album – the controversial rapper’s sixth, follows Igor, his hugely successful 2019 album. Igor debuted at No 1 on the US Billboard 200, becoming Tyler’s first chart-topping album in the United States. The album also features the song Earfquake, which peaked at No 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. Igor went on to win the award for Best Rap Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
As well as critically acclaimed releases with Odd Future and a string of albums including Goblin, Cherry Bomb and Flower Boy, Tyler has branched out beyond music. In 2011, Tyler started the clothing company Golf Wang. In 2012, he began hosting an annual music festival called Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. He created his own streaming service app named Golf Media, which ran from 2015 to 2018 and contained original scripted series from Tyler and a livestream of each Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.
