UPDATE: According to Pitchfork, an Odd Future rep has stated that this was all a prank and that Tyler, The Creator's claim that Thebe is back in L.A. is false.

Remember when we found Earl Sweatshirt? Unfortunately, he was in Samoa at the time, and it left Odd Future fans feeling increasingly upset as they watched OFWGKTA blow up without one of their most exciting and promising members. Good news: he's back.

First on Formspring, and then in a series of Tweets today, Tyler, The Creator confirmed that Earl landed in L.A. "the other day." Not only that, but he's in the studio with Tyler. Unless this is another prank, hopefully we'll hear from Earl soon.
