Christmas comes early for Frank Ocean fans. The singer/songwriter took to his Tumblr on Saturday evening to release “Wiseman,” a song that was originally slated to appear on the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Django Unchained . In his GQ “Man of the Year” feature, the six-time Grammy-nominated crooner first revealed he wrote a song for the motion picture soundtrack. Recently, Tarantino spoke on the song’s omission with Fuse.

“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

Saturday night’s post simply quoted as “django was ill without it,” includes the song and its lyrics.
