Enough with the video tributes created by fans. Odd Future’s Frank Ocean finally extends his audio to visuals by partnering with director & photographer Nabil Elderkin to debut a video for runaway hit “Novacane.” There’s no model broad with the Hollywood smile included in the treatment; just other imagined women, geishas, adorable but aggressive pandas and an abrupt ending. But as Frank says in song, “I’m feelin’ like Stanley Kubrick, this is some visionary sh*t” and we’re left to watch the video again and again and maybe it’ll make sense eventually. Thankfully, the song sounds fresh as ever so repeat viewings shouldn’t be an issue.
The well-loved Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape will be sold as an EP starting on July 26.
