In the meantime, we're waiting not-so patiently.
Here's some news that might get you through hump day: Frank Ocean could actually release his new album soon.
Frank work's at his own pace so take this tidbit with a grain of salt, but Malay, the acclaimed producer who worked with Frank on Channel Orange, says the album could be ready within a month. The producer told Pitchfork,
"When he’s ready, the world is gonna get it. It could be tomorrow… well not tomorrow but maybe a month [laughs]. We’ve all been working hard. He’s been working super hard. I feel like he’s working harder than he’s ever worked in his life. I’m excited for everyone to hear it. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised, for sure."
Okay, so this isn't a solid confirmation, but at least now we know that Frank is working on the record instead of just showing up during Yeezy season.
We'll continue to wait not-so patiently, Frank, because we know it will be worth it.
