Frank Ocean Three New Songs (live video)
Published Jun 26, 2013Frank Ocean's outstanding Channel Orange made him one of 2012's breakout artists, and yesterday (June 25), he gave a taste of what's next by debuting a handful of new tunes in concert.
During a show in Munich, Germany, he performed a few songs that have emerged in the form of rough, fan-shot bootlegs. The audio and video quality are both a little shoddy, so we'll reserve any judgement on the songs themselves, but the tunes are low key and soulful and don't mark too much of a departure from Channel Orange. Check them out below [via Pitchfork].
There's no word as to when Frank Ocean will release his second album, but he previously told BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe that he was "10, 11 songs" in. He said, "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 wanted to extend that feel into the next record altogether, kind of make it that theme."
