Earl Sweatshirt — aka the most talented and reclusive Odd Future rapper — has finally returned with an astounding new single, ‘Chum’, and announced that his upcoming sophomore will be titled Doris. The track has been given an appropriately somber black-and-white clip — his first since 2010’s ‘Earl‘ — which follows Earl as he floats down an abandoned street and encounters some strange animals while rapping about his absent father, returning home from Samoa this year, and struggling with racial identity. Earl’s collaboration with Flying Lotus earlier this year on ‘Between Friends‘ was one of my favourites of 2012, and ‘Chum’ is fast becoming another.

Watch the video for ‘Chum’ below (via Stereogum).
