Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist have teamed up on a new album called 'Voir Dire'. Watch the video for the new single, 'The Caliphate', featuring Vince Staples.

The LA hip-hop artists, who recently teamed up on 'RIP Tracy' off the producer's July EP 'Flying High', are releasing the LP that they've teased had been released on YouTube under a secret name four years ago. Now, the 11-track album will get an official release, with real names and three new cuts, on 6th October.

In addition to Staples, who also features on 'Mancala', MIKE contributes to 'Sentry', which was released earlier this month. 

The pair will head out on a US tour in November with stops in Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit and more. MIKE and Black Noi$e are booked to support.

The Alchemist recently featured on Travis Scott's latest album 'Utopia' alongside Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo, Sampha, Vegyn, Hudson Mohawke and James Blake, among others.
