It's been over three years since Frank Ocean last shared new music, and approaching a decade since his most recent album. People have started to speculate whether or not he'll ever release again, but, finally, the reclusive golden boy of R&B has hinted at new music — this time, with concrete evidence that it exists. 

Cryptic messages and, admittedly, some grasping at straws have raised — and eventually dashed — fans' hopes of new Ocean music for years now. This time, he's shared a minute-long snippet to tease the untitled new track.

Fans have good reason to be excited about the snippet, which sounds like vintage Ocean à la Channel Orange

The only thing that remains to be seen is whether or not Ocean will actually feel compelled to release the song, or whether he'll keep it in the vault forever, never to be heard again. On the other hand, it could be part of the mysterious album that he doesn't not have in the works

Listen to the snippet below.
