Ahead of the release of his second album, TYRON, in February, slowthai is giving fans a reason to smile with his latest face mask merch.
The mask features the rapper’s mouth in an eerie smile – a homage to the artwork of Aphex Twin‘s Richard D. James Album. The full image was taken for a signed postcard slowthai sent out to announce the completing of his album.
“Last week I spent two days signing and sending out a few thousand surprise postcards at random to you lot,” he wrote on Instagram earlier this month. “I couldn’t send one to everyone but I hope you know you’re forever appreciated… album two is done. Love to you all.”
Earlier this month, the rapper dropped new single “nhs”, accompanied by a video that sees him waiting in a socially-distanced queue outside the supermarket (relatable), and hoarding toilet paper. Watch the visuals here, and revisit Dazed’s lockdown interview with slowthai for more on what fans can expect from TYRON.
