Thanks For Dropping 'Endless,' Frank Ocean, But We Still Have QuestionsBy Christian Bryant | August 19, 2016
Frank Ocean fans probably thought they'd have to wait until November for new music from the singer. Then, without warning Thursday night, Ocean's Apple Music live stream came to life and revealed "Endless," a 45-minute visual project featuring 18 songs and Ocean trying his hand at carpentry. And there's reportedly more to come.
The visual album features vocals from singer Jazmine Sullivan and includes contributions from Sampha and James Blake.
If I wasn't on it id still tell u to get it cuz.. well.. It's Frank! #endless ❤️— Jazmine Sullivan (@jsullivanmusic) August 19, 2016
Apple Music tweeted Thursday night that "Endless" is a "film." According to Rolling Stone, it's something entirely separate from Ocean's upcoming album, which might be coming this weekend — though Rolling Stone reports Ocean ditched the title "Boys Don’t Cry" for something TBA.
So naturally we've got questions. What happened to "Boys Don't Cry"? Are we still getting a printed publication with the album's release? Where's Ocean going with that spiral staircase? And when will he take our money in exchange for music?
@AppleMusic can he stop trying to be some artistic construction worker and just drop the damn album— Em (@emconcannon) August 19, 2016
At the end of the day, it's been a long wait. And we're thankful.
