After four long years, Ocean released new music.
After what seems like an eternity, Frank Ocean is finally giving fans the new music they’ve been waiting for.
The mysterious R&B crooner has spent much of the last two years promising music lovers new tunes that instead resulted in botched release dates and cryptic followup statements about why things didn’t go as planned, but it seems those days are now long gone. Taking to his website boysdontcry.co late Thursday evening, Ocean streamed an entire visual album titled Endless as fans watched him build a staircase while the tracks played loudly in the background.
An eclectic mix of music that includes a cover of Aaliyah’s “At Your Best” and subtle contributions from a small but diverse group of musicians including powerhouse songstress Jazmine Sullivan, Frank Ocean’s Endless takes listeners on the ride they’ve been waiting to experience once again since the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Channel Orange back in 2012.
But, wait. There’s more.

Although Endless is indeed a full project, another formal album is reportedly still on the horizon and set to release on Apple Music this weekend, according to Rolling Stone. The new album was previously titled Boys Don’t Cry, but Rolling Stone reports that Ocean has apparently decided to scrap that title for a new one that has yet to be revealed. For now, you can head over to Apple Music to get a full listen of Endless while waiting to see what entertainment’s most evasive young musician has in store next.
