While Frank Ocean may have just dropped his new visual album/experience Endless, a lot more music may be right on the horizon.
Endless went up by surprise last night at the cusp of midnight. The visual album, featuring plenty of artists including Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and Sampha is being streamed on Apple Music now (see more details, including the tracklist, here). This came as a huge surprise, considering Ocean announced previously that his next album would be titled Boys Don't Cry, but, according to Rolling Stone, that project is coming, and it'll be here very soon.
Rolling Stone claims "Endless is a different project from Boys Don't Cry, the singer's highly-anticipated follow-up to 2012's Channel Orange. Apple will release that album this weekend." So, we will get both his second and third records within the span of a few days. The exact date of the album's release is unknown, and the tracklist and more is yet to be revealed, but we'll have the details as they come in.
The long wait is over for new Frank Ocean music. After fans kept creating theories on when the follow up to 2012's channel ORANGE, Ocean set up boysdontcry.co, where a stream with some background music could be found, showing a scene of a warehouse. After the stream was left up for two weeks, he finally appeared on it and built a staircase of wood, with music from his new visual album Endless playing in the background for the first time.
Fans have finally gotten new music, but not in the way they'd expect it. Endless is available for streaming via Apple Music, but without individual tracks - you have to watch the visual experience that comes with it.
The video can be streamed entirely from iTunes (Apple Music link here), and features a woodwork project being worked through - Frank's staircase. The tracklist is jam packed with a lot of guests, too - Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and the accompanying London Contemporary Orchestra lend their expertise on the cover of Isley Brothers' 'At Your Best (You Are Love)', with James Blake also offering his voice on the track. Other guests include Sampha, Jazmine Sullivan, and Alex G. The tracklist is as follows:
- Device Control
- At Your Best (You Are Love) (Isley Brothers cover; ft. James Blake, Jonny Greenwood, & London Contemporary Orchestra)
- Mine (ft. Arca)
- Alabama (ft. Sampha & Jazmine Sullivan)
- Ambience 001: In A Certain Way
- Commes Des Garcons
- Ambience 002: Honeybaby
- Whitter 10 Hubolts (ft. Alex G & Jazmine Sullivan)
- In Here Somewhere
- Slide On Me (ft. Alex G)
- Deathwish (ASR) 16 Rushes
- Rushed To (ft. Alex G and Jazmine Sullivan)
- Higgs (ft. Alex G)
Be on the look out for our review of the record soon, and a possible non-visual release on the record. More music is expected to follow this weekend, as well...
