After returning last month with new music, Earl Sweatshirt just gave fans an extra dose of good news.

On Friday, the rapper shared another brand new song called "Tabula Rasa," which comes with confirmation of a full new project called SICK!, which will arrive Jan. 14 via Tan Cressida and Warner Records.

"SICK! is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns," says Earl of the new project. "Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn't fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life."

He continues: "People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn't going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air. Peace and love to Zelooperz the enigma, The Armand Hammer, and my good friends Alchemist and Black Noi$e. Peace and love to u."
