Tyler, the Creator has released his documentary about the making of his 2015 album Cherry Bomb, having teased its release earlier this year.
The 43-minute film detailing the creative process of Cherry Bomb is available to stream on Youtube. It explores each song alongside interviews with those who assisted on that song as well as commentary from Tyler. It features a lot of familiar faces including Pharrell, Charlie Wilson, Hans Zimmer, Chaz (Toro Y Moi) and A$AP Rocky and no so familiar faces like a jovial Kanye West.
Many of the interviews describe the way each artist influences each others’ work and personhood with compliments all round.
When describing working with singer Charlie Wilson, Tyler said, “I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed making a song. Charlie Wilson took what I had in my head and made it come to fruition so perfectly that I started stressing out at the fact that I could never do anything that good.”
The documentary is light-hearted, infused with artistic elements and a synthesis of ideas that are concurrent in most of Tylers’ work.
Tyler has been busy with a multitude of other projects recently. He has created the theme song for Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Netflix series and added music to a short film by Portland rapper Aminé. He has also announced his 2017 Camp Flog Gnaw Festival, which will be held at Exposition Park, Los Angeles on 28th – 29th October.
He has also revealed that his and Lionel Boyce’s animated series “The Jellies” will be premiering on Adult Swim this Winter while his Viceland series “Nuts and Bolts” will begin airing on August 3rd in the US.
