EARL SWEATSHIRT & THE ALCHEMIST RELEASE SURPRISE ALBUM ‘VOIR DIRE’
Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist surprise fans with the release of their joint album, VOIR DIRE. The 11-track album arrives as a digital collectible that fans can listen to exclusively through Gala Music with the exception of the album track “Sentry” which features rapper MIKE and is available now on all traditional streaming platforms. The long-rumored and highly-anticipated album from Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist was discovered by fans through a scavenger hunt that consisted of a series of real-life and digital puzzles that had to be solved before the album was revealed. As fans from across the globe collaborated in online forums to piece the clues together, they unearthed easter eggs online, from Earl’s pop-up at the GOLF WANG store in Los Angeles, and from events in Chicago, New York City, and London before realizing the existence of the album.
