Fresh off winning and performing at the Grammy Awards, Frank Ocean made his way across the Atlantic to London, England this week. The singer took time from his busy schedule to catch up with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe on Tuesday afternoon. During their on-air conversation they discuss his unforgettable night at the GRAMMYs, and name drops Prince as the one artist he would’ve love to have met that evening.
The two also discuss recently working with Pharrell, an upcoming studio session with Dangermouse, and being a fan of U.K.’s King Krule. When it comes to his sophomore album, Frank reveals that he’s deep into the new record and that he’s planning to rent a place in Bora Bora to work on his new project following his London trip.
“I’m like 10, 11 songs into this next thing. It’s another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again. At the end of channel, ORANGE there’s “Golden Girl,” and it’s this beach scene. And I kind of want it to extend that feel into the next record all together, kind of make it that theme.”
