Frank Ocean Is Dropping a New Album in July
It has been three years since Frank Ocean his last album channel ORANGE and with one Tumblr post, the West Coast crooner cast the internet into a frenzy as he subtly announced that he has a new album coming in July. The picture (seen above) also featured the hashtags "#ISSUE1, #ALBUM3, #JULY2015 and #BOYSDONTCRY" got people curious about what the talented singer has in store. A rep from Ocean's camp confirmed the album with Billboard. Along with the currently untitled album, Ocean will also release some sort of magazine titled Boys Don't Cry that will also debut in July. Expect more news and music to leak as the months turn warmer.
Despite not dropping a project in three years, Ocean has remained a buzzworthy artist. When he popped up in the studio with Hit-Boy and Rodney Jerkins and when Hit-Boy teased "No Such Thing As Black Jesus," a collab with Nas, fans became eager to hear more. That was over six months ago and the elusive artist has only dropped two songs since then; "Memrise" and "You Are Luhh." channel ORANGE was a huge success, winning the GRAMMY for Best Urban Contemporary Album and was nominated for Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Record of the Year for "Thinkin Bout You."
On Facebook, James Blake said he and Ocean are not performing together instead they'll be putting on club nights. "We're on a 1-800 DINOSAUR road trip, putting on club nights and documenting the weekend for the BoysDontCry Magazine," he wrote.
