Frank Ocean has teased fans with a snippet of new material, sharing a minute-long clip of unreleased material. The preview was posted by Ocean on Instagram and can be heard below. There is no further information as to whether it will lead to a full release (or if it's even real). The FADER has reached out for more details.
Ocean has been using Instagram more often than usual in recent weeks, sharing a series of selfies and pictures from his life. This post, shared on Wednesday, is the first time he has hinted at new music. He hasn’t released a new song since April 2020 when he dropped “Cayendo” and “Dear April.” A vinyl release of the two songs was scrapped in December that same year.
Since then Ocean has pursued many different ventures, including a reported project with director Luca Guadagnino and a separate A24 movie. His luxury goods brand Homer also branched out, releasing a $25,000 cock ring in 2022.
Speaking at the top of 2023, Ocean said he was "interested in more durational bodies of work," leading some to suggest/hope a new album was coming. His headline performance at Coachella in April, however, was divisive and Ocean pulled out of the second weekend through injury.
