Watch: Earl Sweatshirt Previews Album With ‘Hive’

Sweatshirt’s ‘Doris’ album is out this August.

A bleary eyed Earl Sweatshirt has unveiled the ‘Hive’ track from his newly announced ‘Doris’ album.

‘Hive’ is a super-minimal cut, choked-up and sedated. Monotonous choral pads skitter in the background, with Sweatshirt’s vocals flicking from character-crammed to sore and story-filled. Vince Staples and Casey Veggies feature on the track.

The follow on from 2010’s ‘Earl’ mixtape gains release on 20th August in the US.
