Earl Sweatshirt Announces ‘Fire It Up!’ Tour With Short Film, ‘Nowhere, Nobody’


Earl’s back in full-effect.

Earl Sweatshirt’s latest album, Some Rap Songs, released on November 30th of this past year, is an apt reflection of who he is: unstructured, enigmatic, esoteric, and, above all, fantastic. At only 24-minutes long, the “Sunday” rapper’s project, is, as he put it in a tweet, “all the easier to run it back”. Yes, it is easy to run through the album’s entirety relatively easy in one sitting, and now Earl is here with an alternative consumption method.

Stitching together several tracks, Earl has come through today with a short film, Nowhere, Nobody. Using “Nowhere2go”, the fan favorite “Red Water”, and “Shattered Dreams”, the Nowhere, Nobody video is not only a visual counterpart to Some Rap Songs, it’s how Earl’s announced his forthcoming tour, Fire It Up!

The new Earl tour will kick off on March 23rd in New Orleans at the BUKU Music + Art Project festival; it will span 32-cities over roughly 10-weeks, culminating in London on June 7th at the Field Day Festival.
