That’s right. The wait is almost over.
The album will be exclusive to Apple Music for the first two weeks, before wider distribution ensues. Apple has recently arranged similar deals with big name artists including Drake, Future, and Chance the Rapper.
Leading up to the release, Frank has given us a cryptic trail of hints. First an Instagram pic of an old due-date library card with dates stamped leading up to July 2016 with the message #BoysDontCry.
On Monday Frank Ocean also live-streamed a mysterious video on his website, which has since been taken down, hinting further that activity is in the works. A director by the name of Francisco Soriano is taking credit for the video art, he also shot the video for Frank Ocean’s “Lost.”
But now with the various official announcements, we can only wait in anticipation for Friday and his new album.
