Surprise! Early Friday morning, Frank Ocean gave fans the first taste of new music since 2012’s channel ORANGE. Released as a live stream on his website BoysDontCry.co the singer-songwriter debuted a visual album titled ‘Endless.’
The video included footage of Ocean building a spiral staircase in a warehouse. The audio can be heard playing in the background over the sound of drills and construction.
Soon after the stream ended, the nearly 46-minute visual album, entitled Endless, debuted in its entirety on Apple Music. It features 18 tracks, with contributions from Jazmine Sullivan, James Blake, Sampha, and TROY NōKA. Ocean’s rendition of The Isley Brothers’ “At Your Best (You Are Love),” which Aaliyah famously covered, is also included.
There might be more on the way as well.
According to Rolling Stone, Endless is a different project from Boys Don’t Cry. Reports claim that Apple has plans to release that album this weekend.
