It’s got some high profile cameos

It has 5 Different Album Covers
Never one to half-arse it, The Creator has created not one but five alternate album covers for the physical edition of the disc. Fans can choose from a fistful of different artwork designs, including one that shows the rapper pissing his pants. Wee-markable!
A new two-in-one video has just been released
Tyler, who also produced the album himself, has just released a brand new two-part video for the singles, FUCKING YOUNG and DEATHCAMP.
Directed by Tyler himself under his ‘Wolf Haley’ alias, the 6-and-a-half minute clip begins as an awkward cradle-snatching love story for FUCKING YOUNG/PERFECT before veering into a Mad Max-meets-The Mighty Boosh style desert chase for DEATHCAMP.
