The 45-minute visual album contains all brand-new music ― though not under the title, “Boys Don’t Cry,” originally promised.
The New York Times confirmed that “Endless” became available on Ocean’s website late Thursday night in the form of a black-and-white livestream that showed the singer building a staircase. The stream builds on the one first spotted in early August.
According to the Times, the new album will stream exclusively on Apple Music. An Apple executive told the newspaper in a statement that fans should “keep an eye out this weekend for more from Frank.” It’s rumored that Ocean could drop a second album (possibly “Boys Don’t Cry”).
There is no doubt that fans will be happy with “Endless,” as many have been anxiously awaiting Ocean’s return since 2012’s critically acclaimed “Channel Orange.” Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood appears on the 18-track album, as does James Blake and music from the London Contemporary Orchestra.
