Earl Sweatshirt appeared as the musical guest on Monday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, during which he delivered a performance of “2010” from his newly-released album Sick!.

The performance marked Sweatshirt’s first appearance as a musical guest on The Tonight Show, though he previously appeared on Fallon’s Late Night for a performance of “Burgundy” with the Roots in 2013.

Sick!, which Sweatshirt released earlier this month, clocks in at under 30 minutes and includes 10 tracks with features from Zelooperz and Armand Hammer. At the time of the album’s release, Earl released a statement revealing that the record was created during the beginning of the pandemic.

“Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly),” he said. “Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore.”

“A wise man said art imitates life,” he added “People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. these songs are what happened when I would come up for air.”

Sweatshirt released “2010” ahead of the album’s debut in November alongside a music video directed by Ryosuke Tanzawa.
