Frank Ocean’s New Album Arriving This Friday

The long awaited follow up to 'Channel Orange' has a release date

After four years of anticipation, Frank Ocean’s follow up to the ravenously reviewed Channel Orange, debuts this Friday.

Boys Don’t Cry, the R&B singer’s sophomore release will be an Apple exclusive for two weeks following it’s release on August 5, 2016 before becoming widely available thereafter. A handful of teases and projected release dates have been keeping fans on edge and it looks like Ocean might finally be happy with the product he’s put together. There’s much to live up to after his debut — regardless fans are yearning for new music. Just don’t be surprised if Ocean decides to push the release!

Channel Orange was praised for being ambitious and put Frank Ocean at the top of many album of the year lists in 2012 as well as garnering six Grammy Awards, winning best urban contemporary album.
