NEW YORK – Grammy-nominated vocalist Frank Ocean has teased about an album and a release date for months, but right before midnight Friday dropped his highly anticipated recording “Endless” on Apple Music.
The “visual album” titled “Endless,” which runs about 45 minutes long, can be seen or heard through exclusively through Apple’s Music streaming service. The video is an extended look at an earlier August 1 released live stream purportedly showing Ocean in a warehouse woodworking and fixing beats on his album.
More is on the horizon. An Apple representative told the NY Times to “keep an eye out this weekend for more from Frank.”
The New Orleans soul singer hinted about an album since 2014, but has routinely pushed a release date – much to the ire and humor of fans. Last month, he posted a photo of a library card with several due dates, implying one of those would be finally be the day.
In 2012, his debut studio album “Channel Orange” earned him universal critical-acclaim. Ocean confessed to loving a man when he was younger in Tumblr post, drawing praise from celebrities from the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z.
