Frank Ocean fans have a lot to unpack after this weekend. On the 10th anniversary of his sophomore studio album, Channel Orange, Ocean dropped two new episodes of Blonded Radio, his show on Apple Music 1. These two episodes contained a moment that hints at the enigmatic superstar making progress on new music. Compiled with other recent movements from Frank, we’re anticipating that we’ll be hearing new music sooner rather than later.
The most notable remark from Ocean was that he was working on new music in Malibu—where he recently purchased a multi-million dollar home. This follows reports that Frank Ocean was “shopping around” his album at different labels last fall. The exact quote is “I was working in Malibu this summer,” followed by an anecdote about psychedelics and human experiences.
To add more to the mix, Frank Ocean also has a new Spotify banner image. And, as we previously reported last August, he’s also confirmed as a headliner for Coachella next year.
Frank Ocean’s last full bodies of work, Blonde and Endless, came almost six years ago.
You can listen to the new episodes of Blonded Radio below if you have Apple Music. His quote about working in Malibu happens at the 13-minute mark during the episode titled “blonded Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
