The other day we finally received a sneak peek of Frank Ocean’s new album. Said “sneak peek” comes in the form of a sexy, nearly ten-minute long r&b jam thats simply oozing with extra awesome-sauce. It’s a smooth, twisting groove with grimy low-end and swirling, ambiant synths to accompany Ocean’s characteristically velvety vocals as he slowly relates the story of a “Cleopatra” who works at a stripclub called “The Pyramid.” The verdict? It sounds freaking great. Safe to say this is going to be an album to watch for.
The album is called Channel Orange and July 17th it’s released via Def Jam. Mark your calendar.
