“Call Me If You Get Lost was the first album I made with alot [sic] of songs that didnt [sic] make the final cut,” Tyler wrote on Twitter last week. “Some of those songs I really love, and knew they would never see the light of day, so Ive [sic] decided to put a few of them out.”
Along with the digital version of The Estate Sale, the LP is available for presale on vinyl and CD formats. Tyler, who released the original version of Call Me If You Get Lost last June, appears on new Hulu docuseries RapCaviar Presents.
