After dipping into the conceptual for his esoteric Feet of Clay EP last November, Earl Sweatshirt has now returned with a brand new single titled “WHOLE WORLD.” Presumably off his forthcoming studio album, the single tags Maxo for a verse as well as The Alchemist for some breezy old school production.
On the track, both Earl and Max offload some cryptic bars over an on-edge beat. As creeping basses and guitar chords set an eerie backdrop, Maxo raps “Runnin’ after sh*t, I think I want to double back/Devil hittin’ my peripherals, start laughin’.” Earl taps into his chthonic underpinnings on the second verse, slinging out “My effervescence lost, but not entirely, I shrug the venom off/And kept a tiny peace for times we in the war/I like to think of life as deep, chilly water/We in it, feeling’ warm, swimmin’ upstream.”
