Frank Ocean has emerged from his private hideout to preview some new music for fans in the form of a video snippet that sees him jamming out in the studio.
Fans of the elusive artist were thrilled when he returned to Instagram on Thursday (December 7) and teased an unreleased anthem on his IG Story.
The first clip sees Frank Ocean messing around in the studio with Olaolu Slawn’s son, Beau, before transitioning to the Blonde singer head-bobbing and flexing his muscles to his latest creation featuring him harmonizing over a slice of warm production.
Listen to the unreleased jam below:
It was a busy Thursday for Frank Ocean who resurfaced on social media with more treats for fans. The 36-year-old also made the Blonde vinyl available for purchase through his website.
The vinyl record, which comes with a foldout for the lyrics and a separate album posted, will cost fans $65. Those looking for gear are in luck as well with a Brazilian flag-colored Blonded Radio t-shirt on sale alongside $120 soccer shorts available in a plethora of colorways.
As the hope for a new album on the horizon from the former Odd Future member remains strong, the song preview comes about a month after Frank gave fans a glimpse into another track in November which marked his first new material since 2020.
“Playin’ way more laid back than I did when I was my younger self/ You would vent to me ’bout assumptions but they were educated guesses/ That’s why I keep spinning your block, tryna see all your sides, and your heart’s been tangled in barbed wires/ You can hand it to me, I can handle it,” he sings over sparse, spacey synthesizers.
No song title was revealed, but the snippet is 60 seconds long while the full version appears to clock in at almost four minutes.
Frank Ocean’s last album Blonde was released in 2016, while his most recent material arrived in 2020 in the form of the singles “Dear April” and “Cayendo.”
An unreleased song called “These Days” leaked online earlier this year after reportedly being purchased by a leaker for $6,200. Frank acknowledged its existence by sharing the correct lyrics in an Instagram comment.
