Having amassed both critical and commercial success — most recently earning the singer a Grammy and a BRIT award — to call Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE a masterpiece is basically a factual statement. As if the original 17 tracks weren’t enough for you, an unreleased cut reportedly from the album sessions has surfaced online today. Entitled “Eyes Like Sky,” this is a charming, acoustic number on which Frank beautifully explores his faith and spirituality.
In other good news, Ocean recently told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe that he is “10, 11 songs” into his next album, which he describes as “another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again.” We can’t wait.
