There are new album details for Frank Ocean, which would be his sophomore major label work.
Editor’s note: yay!!!!!!
The advancements in Ocean’s work have been pretty vast. From his Lonny Breaux, to nostalgia/Ultra, to channel Orange, Ocean has changed his approach every single time, and evolved to the point where nobody outside his circle should even attempt to guess what it’s going to sound like. Still, according to one collaborator, it’s going to be “hot”.
Here’s an excerpt courtesy of Consequence of Sound:
According to Buzzfeed, the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2012′s Channel Orange involves “a number of layers.” Said frequent collaborator Nabil, “Everyone should be excited about this new album — that shit is fire. He’s making a great record. It blows the sophomore-album myth out of the water.”
Buzzfeed also reports that Frank has shaken up his management in anticipation of the album’s release, leaving his longtime team of Christian and Kelly Clancy. He also has reportedly hired a new publicist in ID PR, who also rep Alicia Keys and Paul Simon.
A release date for the album is still unknown. In the meantime, check out Michael Roffman’s recent essay exploring the various routes Frank may take with the LP.
Now, let’s get some music going. Here’s “Super Rich Kids”:
