Odd Future’s resident soulman has had a week in the spotlight, but now it’s his music that’s going to the object of public scrutiny.
Frank Ocean’s long-awaited new album Channel Orange has now been made available to enjoy in its entirety. The full stream follows on from wonderful advance track ‘Pyramids’, and this week’s Pharrell-augmented ‘Sweet Life’.
Channel Orange is the follow-up to last year’s exceptional mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra, which trundled into our top 10 albums of 2011. The new record features guest spots from Earl Sweatshirt, John Mayer and the redoubtable Andre 3000. Click here to listen to the record.
Although the official release date is July 17, Channel Orange has also been made available early on iTunes (Update: where it’s currently number one in their albums chart – impressive, considering it’s only been available for 11 hours). Click here to grab it, should you be so inclined. Ocean also put in a corking performance of ‘Bad Religion’ on Jimmy Fallon last night; catch it below:
