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.

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
