In a new SPIN feature, Tyler, the Creator reveals that his next album is titled Wolf and scheduled for release in May 2012. He mentions a new direction for his lyrics, which may pleasantly surprise Goblin skeptics:
"Talking about rape and cutting bodies up, it just doesn't interest me anymore... What interests me is making weird hippie music for people to get high to. With Wolf, I'll brag a little more, talk about money and buying shit. But not like any other rapper, I'll be a smart-ass about it. Now it's just girls throwing themselves at me and shit, but I got a girl back home. People who want the first album again, I can't do that. I was 18, broke as fuck. On my third album, I have money and I'm hanging out with my idols. I can't rap about the same shit."
Describing his hopes for the record, he mentioned that he would like it to take cues from the psychedelic Stones Throw band Stepkids:
"I wanna make the music I actually get all my influence from. I don't know how, but I'm gonna try shit like this out. I'm gonna make a band or something."
