After revealing to us that he’s 10-11 songs deep into sophomore album, here’s a unreleased record from the two time Grammy Award winner Frank Ocean. The song is called “Eyes Like Sky.” According to the email this may be a leftover from the channel ORANGE recording sessions. Sounds more like a demo to us. Anyways, listen below.
While Channel Orange is still being played around these parts, Frank Ocean is currently in the UK on tour and stopped by Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1. Frank Ocean says he is planning on working on the upcoming album in Bora Bora. Also the “Forrest Gump,” singer talks about being 10-11 songs into next album, and possibly touring this summer. We can’t wait to hear what he’s cooked up with Pharrell once again since the pair were in the studio yesterday. Listen to the 28 minute interview down below.
While we wait for the “Thinkin Bout You,” singer forthcoming video for “Forrest Gump.” Today, his debut studio album, Channel Orange has surpassed 500k copies. The album has been certified Gold by the RIAA. Also Frank Ocean is up for “Best New Album” and “Record of the Year” for his single “Thinkin ‘Bout You.”
Congrats to Frank Ocean.
With the Grammy nominated album channel ORANGE, still getting spins on my iTunes. Frank Ocean has begun shooting the video for his next single, “Forrest Gump.” Not sure where the video is being shot at, but Frank Ocean gathers up the homies and some cheerleaders for this video. I’m glad he’s shooting a video for this track, it’s one of my personal favorites.

As he promised. One of my favorite records from Frank Ocean’s debut album, Channel Orange gets a remix from ATLien’s own Big Boi. The song originally features his Outkast member Andre 3000. Tags for now, but hopefully Elliott will release the CDQ soon.
Update: That was quick. CDQ from RR.
Update 2: Now with official artwork & CDQ /No Tags/Dirty version.
Well lookie here. The “Thinkin Bout You” crooner decided to treat his fans with a brand new track entitled “Wiseman.” This record was originally set to be released on the soundtrack from the forthcoming Quentin Tarantino directed “Django Unchained,” but was scrapped for unknown reasons. Enjoy.

In a recent interview with, Guardian U.K. Frank Ocean talks about his debut album With being nominated for six Grammy’s Frank Ocean Channel Orange may be his last album. Maybe. He also spoke on the importance of Grammy nominations, writing a book, and more.
On Grammy nominations:
“Of course awards matter. It’s like a player in any ball league – NFL, NBA, whatever – you come up in these systems of organisation, and you can hate the league but, at the end of the day, you can’t hate the championship. Music industry people – and, whether I like it or not, I’m a music industry person – that’s the game I came up in. The Grammys are like the championship, and that’s cool. It’s cool to be recognised by your peers … blah blah blah blah!”
On “Channel Orange” potentially being his last album:
“It could be. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that’s just … that’s just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that.”
On writing a book:
“You know, I gotta answer those questions for myself day by day. I don’t intend to stop making music. This isn’t a faux retirement. It’s no bullshit. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think – it would be fucking legendary if I just made Channel Orange last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014! I don’t know! You just do what you can and you have as much fun as possible, and love your life as much as you can despite the bullshit and all the expectations and shit. You just do what the fuck you wanna do at the end of the day, and don’t give a fuck. As long as your intentions are solid, and about growth and progression and being productive and not being idle, then you’re doing good in my book. ”
