Frank Ocean's 'Endless' Is NOT Coming to Streaming Services
The album was given an official physical release last year
Published Jan 25, 2019While he recently teased a new SZA cover, Frank Ocean will be giving listeners another look at his Endless LP, which will now see an official release on streaming services.
Billboard reports that multiple sources confirm the effort, initially released as a 45-minute music video in 2016, will arrive "soon" as a track-by-track release. The site notes that two sources expected the album to arrive digitally today, while others say it has been delayed.
UPDATE (1/30, 1 p.m. EST): Frank Ocean himself has now weighed in and said this is all "fake news." You can see his post about Endless, which is apparently not coming to streaming services, here.
In late 2017, Ocean offered pre-orders for physical editions of Endless on vinyl, CD, DVD and VHS for 24 hours only on Cyber Monday. The physical editions featured properly mixed and mastered audio, in addition to a complete tracklist.
Prior to official release, fans had circulated lower quality audio files ripped from the album's initial video stream, with unofficial vinyl copies of the record appearing for purchase soon after.
Fans waited nearly five months after pre-ordering the physical editions to receive them, a problem that also plagued the limited Black Friday release of Ocean's Blonde LP.
