FINALLY we get something new from Frank Ocean.
What seemed like a music mirage is actually happening as the Cali singer released what is described to be a “visual album.” Endless, which technically began as under construction (literally) on his website, is now a full blown visual, featuring new music from Ocean playing in the background.
Credits for the Endless have also been revealed. Jazmine Sullivan is featured as a vocalist on four songs while Sampha makes the cut on “Alabama.” Frank Ocean himself has piano and guitar credits on the project. Interestingly, one of the songs is a cover of The Isley Brothers’ “At Your Best (Your Are Love)” — which James Blake, Om’Mas Keith and the London Contemporary Orchestra are all featured on.
If you’re wondering what happened to Boys Don’t Cry, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Reputable sources are saying that Frank’s long-rumored LP is actually dropping sometime this weekend. Endless itself consists of approximately 45 minutes of previously unheard music by the former Odd Future member.
It seemed that all was lost last week when no new music from Frank Ocean surfaced even after the New York Times reported that there would be an album coming out. It was back to the drawing board and according to his own cryptic messaging, the album wasn’t going to come before November.
Nothing is certain with Frank Ocean, so we’re still holding our breath for Boys Don't Cry (but not for too long). For now, peep out his latest project, Endless, via Apple Music here. Also, check out the album's credits and reaction from fans below now that new Frank Ocean music has arrived.
