De facto Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator will release his new album, Wolf, on April 2nd, and a brand new single and video will premiere tonight on the Odd Future website at 9 p.m. PST/midnight EST. You can also check out the album's three different covers over at Pitchfork.

Along with the follow-up to his 2011 breakout album, the controversial Goblin, Tyler announced he'd be hitting the road in March, with dates throughout North America and Europe starting March 12th at Columbus, Ohio's Newport Music Hall.

In fittingly ridiculous fashion, Tyler announced the album with a video that finds the Odd Future sidekick Lionel "L-Boy" Boyce skydiving and shouting the news over the wind – making sure to take a few jabs at Tyler as well.

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
