"A Boy Is a Gun," one of many highlights worth revisiting again and again on Tyler, the Creator's Igor album, now has a new Happy Place-produced video to go along with it.

Up top, catch the latest Tyler visual.

Last month, Tyler unveiled the lineup for this year's edition of the always-great Camp Flog Gnaw. Brockhampton, Juice WRLD, and FKA twigs are among those hitting Dodger Stadium for the two-day festival in November.

This month's Tyler news also includes a surprise guest appearance by "Potato Salad" collaborator ASAP Rocky at his Madison Square Garden show, which is part of the larger global touring schedule behind his critically lauded fifth studio album. 

In an interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe back in July, Tyler reflected on how pop sounds of the 1980s played a pivotal role in the development of the songs that would ultimately become Igor.

"It's slowly becoming my favorite cause of the sector of music that I've, like, I found over the years," Tyler said, specifically pointing to the track "Earfquake," which he says first started coming together in May 2017.

In the same interview, which is practically begging for a rewatch above, Tyler also discussed his affinity for pop of the current era. By his assessment, the Drake classic "Started from the Bottom" stands as "one of the greatest pop songs ever." Tyler also referenced Frank Ocean and the Neptunes as harbingers of song structure.
