Maybe it’s a song. Maybe it’s a full length project. Whatever the case may be, R&B’s most popular enigma of the moment, Frank Ocean, is prepping the release of channel ORANGE set to crash land July 17. Seeing as how nostalgia, ULTRA had the same style (one word lowercased with the second being uppercased), such leads yours truly to believe it’ll be a collection of songs as opposed to a solo offering. Lord knows I’ve been wrong before several times though, so take my confidence with a grain of salt. However, the song in the featured clip below does have a nice bounce and overall “ride-with-the-windows-down” feel.
I’m pleased. As elegant as nU continues to sound over a year later, file this information in your “good news cabinet.” The summer could use some new music from Frank.
