On November 13, Ty Dolla $ign will release his debut album Free TC. He release a 10-track prelude Airplane Mode this week, but it's hard to tell if that was a sign of things to come on the album or simply a dump of all the tracks that didn't quite make the cut.

At 16 tracks, Free TC is longer than any of his best-know projects; the Beach House mixtapes were both 13 songs long, Beach House EP was 8, Sign Language was 11, and Airplane Mode was 10. As an artist who excels on features, Ty Dolla $ign's debut album is the biggest test he's faced yet.
