Tierra Whack has announced her new album, WORLD WIDE WHACK, out March 15th via Interscope Records. She will also share a new single called “SHOWER SONG” this Friday, January 26th.
Described in a press release as the Philly rapper and singer’s “most artistic project to date,” WORLD WIDE WHACK is being billed as her debut album. It was created with conceptual artist Alex Da Corte, who previously directed the animated video for her 2020 song “Dora.”
Much like her 2018 full-length, Whack World, the album will also roll out as a visual art project featuring images and video. During that process, it will reveal Whack’s fictional WORLD WIDE WHACK character: “an alter ego both untouchable and vulnerable, superhuman, and painfully human.”
Da Corte designed the cover artwork, which references Pierrot, the original sad clown of 17th-century Italian theater; radical 1930s fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli; and Donna Summer. Check it out below.
Last year, Whack got us excited for the album with the loosies “Chanel Pit” and “Millions.” Read why Consequence picked WORLD WIDE WHACK as one of our most anticipated albums for 2024.
