Frank Ocean has finally released some new music, and it’s in the form of an 18-track visual album called Endless. Ocean is listed as creative director and executive producer, and there are guest vocals by Jazmine Sullivan and Sampha. A cover of the Isley Brothers’ “At Your Best (You Are Love)” also features James Blake on synthesizer and string orchestration by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. Fans of Alex G. will also be thrilled to see him credited for guitar on album tracks “Slide On Me” and “Wither” (Full credits below.)
The 45-minute follow-up to Ocean’s Grammy-nominated Channel Orange was released after an Apple Music sponsored live stream — which has previously shown the elusive singer woodworking and playing instruments — started airing footage of Ocean playing songs from the album as he worked on… a spiral staircase.
According to New York Times reporter Joe Coscarelli, there will be “more from Frank” this weekend, but there are no further specifics.
