Frank Ocean’s Second Album Is Titled “Blonde” And It’s Available Now

(AllHipHop News) Singer Frank Ocean’s highly anticipated second album Blonde is now available for purchase.

The mysterious musician has kept fans waiting for a follow-up to his Grammy-winning 2012 debut album Channel Orange, but listeners no longer have to cool their heels for his new songs.

Ocean’s second album Blonde, a 17-track LP that also contains his fresh single “Nikes,” became available to buy via streaming app Apple Music on Saturday (August 20), two days after the release of his surprise visual album Endless.

While many have reported that Endless is Ocean’s long-awaited new record, Rolling Stone confirmed it is in fact a separate project to his follow-up LP Blonde, which was initially believed to be called Boys Don’t Cry.

Instead, the name Boys Don’t Cry applies to a print publication that customers received when they purchased his album Blonde at pop-up shop locations installed in London, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

Frank has kept the surprises coming for fans over the summer and he has been teasing listeners about the release of his second album since last year.

Earlier this month, he hit headlines after posting a cryptic live video stream on his website, showing an Apple Music-sponsored black and white video feed of a warehouse.

Ocean updated his live stream on Thursday (August 18) with footage of him building a staircase in the same warehouse, which are the basis for the visuals seen in Endless.

His 18-track visual album Endless features collaborations with musicians such as James Blake, Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and Jazmine Sullivan, and the London Contemporary Orchestra provides much of the beautiful background tunes thanks to its cello, violin, double bass and viola players.

    I just gave a first listen and it’s really dope. I don’t care bout this dude’s sexual orientation. He just makes good music. That’s enough for me.

        Cause his sexual orientation put his music in the shade. People discuss more about his sexual orientation than his music.

    Still trying to connect with it. “Solo (Reprise)” is the only record that’s really stood out to me. André 3000 never disappoints.
