Frank Ocean Will Release New Album in July
If you’re an R&B fan, you’ve likely asked yourself this question: “When is Frank Ocean releasing another album?” After dropping his critically acclaimed LP, Channel Orange, in 2012, the singer will finally be releasing a new project this summer.
The “Super Rich Kids” singer made the announcement on his official website by posting a photo of himself as he sits besides two stacks of magazines. In the caption, he reveals he will be releasing an album as well as a new publication this year. “’I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.’ #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY,” Ocean wrote as the caption to the image, which you can view below.
While he didn’t reveal any other details about the new record, we do get a sneak peak at the two different covers of the magazine, Boys Don’t Cry. Ocean made the focus of the announcement about the publications on his Tumblr as well. Billboard confirms he will indeed be releasing both the magazine and album.
A new album and a magazine? We can see why Ocean has been laying low over the past few years.
However, Ocean didn’t completely go off the radar. Instead, he made a few changes. After firing his management and PR teams last summer, Ocean signed a new management deal with Three Six Zero in September 2014. He also tried to legally change his name from Christopher Breaux to Frank Ocean in November, but unfortunately that didn’t work out.
On the music front, Ocean teased a new tune called “Memrise” and also covered Aaliyah’s ‘At Your Best (You Are Love)’ with his version titled “You Are Luhh” earlier this year. Whether or not these two tracks will make the new LP is still unknown. But we’re more than happy to know that Ocean is putting out a new project in July. The summer is going to be full of heat when it comes to his music.
