Tyler, The Creator adds to his 2021 Grammy winning album “Call Me If You Get Lost,” with “Call Me If You Get Lost: The Estate Sale,” which features eight brand new tracks packed with noteworthy lyrics and production. Tyler also released five music videos to perfectly visualize the new tracks.

Although the new tracks didn’t make the album at the time of its original release, none of them fall short of Tyler’s consistent quality. 

“‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ was the first album I made with a lot of songs that didn’t make the final cut,” Tyler tweeted. “Some of those songs I really love, and knew they would never see the light of day, so I’ve decided to put a few of them out.”

Unsurprisingly, the production on the new tracks are outstanding, with production credits from Kanye West and Madlib.“The Estate Sale” also includes unique features from rappers Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky and YG. 

Tyler seems to only improve with age since his 2011 breakout single “Yonkers.” The evolution of his production style and his vocal performances are even more apparent in “The Estate Sale.”

A massive standout track, “Heaven To Me,” takes a deep dive into what his dream future looks like in vivid detail, such as seeing operas with his future wife and teaching his son how to ride a bike. In this scenario, Tyler isn’t focused on materialism, but raising a happy family, experiencing the outdoors and being in good health. 

Tyler then dives into the mind of his 17-year-old self, and what his idea of “heaven” used to be. He talks about wearing Vans in every color, spending time with friends and owning a Mr. Krabs watch.

“Heaven To Me” uses an instrumental from John Legends’ “Heaven,” produced by Kanye West.

Although Tyler’s desires have changed, he continues to maintain the same mentality of living life to the fullest extent. 

Both “Wharf Talk” and “Boyfriend, Girlfriend (2020 Demo)” seem to serve as a short intermission from the rap cuts in the extended album. These synth-heavy pop tracks are perfect for listeners chasing the summer feeling. 

“The Estate Sale” closes with “Sorry Not Sorry,” a powerful rant that perfectly captures Tyler’s current headspace. 

In this track, Tyler confronts the accusations that he’s changed since his music career exploded. He also talks about his desire for personal space, and the presence of false friends that comes along with commercial success. 

This track serves as the perfect ending to the “Call Me If You Get Lost” era, leaving the listener with no hint to what direction Tyler’s music will go from here.
