Frank Ocean, what are you doing to us?! Frank’s been keeping a pretty low profile after his 2012 smash studio debut channel ORANGE, and after promising us a brand new album for three whole years now, he's only gone and dropped TWO.
Endless, a new visual album, dropped without much fanfare, after a mysterious Frank Ocean livestream of Frank building some stairs. You can watch and listen to Frank Ocean - Endless here, and see the track listing below…
1. Device Control (written by Wolfgang Tillmans)
2. At Your Best (You Are Love) (The Isley Brothers Cover)
6. Ambience 001: “In a Certain Way”
7. Commes Des Garcons
8. Ambience 002: “Honeybaby”
11. In Here Somewhere
12. Slide on Me
15. Deathwish (ASR)
17. Rushes To
A second album, no longer called Boy’s Don’t Cry as was assumed, is due this weekend.
We've been waiting a while (understatement) for Frank Ocean's new album. He once told a fan it would be out in he summer of 2014. Then, we stood by in April 2015 when Frank teased us on Tumblr with Boys Don’t Cry, a mysterious project that still hasn’t materialised. A reported release date of June 3rd came and went, July is over, and now? He even disobeyed his record label's statement that it would have been out by Wednesday. it’s fair to see why even Adele is ‘just f**king waiting for Frank f**king Ocean to come out with his album’.

Frank hasn’t been totally silent since the release of channel Orange. He penned a track for Django: Unchained, helped out Beyonce, Jay Z and Tyler, The Creator, as well as Frank’s Track on Kanye West’s Life Of Pablo.
