After what seems like a lifetime of teasing and broken promises, Frank Ocean has finally made good on his word – personally I never doubted him – and dropped Endless, a contemplative and immersive new visual album on Vimeo.
Update: The video has been removed from Vimeo – sorry if you missed it.
Endless features a number of big-name artists including Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, Arca, Jazmine Sullivan, vocalist Sampha and even James Blake.
AALIYAH’S “LET ME KNOW?” What is #FrankOcean doing to me?! I hate this man, but I love him SO much! ?????????????????????

But that’s not all! Endless is an entirely different album from the one he’s been promising us since 2012. We thought it would be named Boys Don’t Cry, but some reports suggest he’s since decided to change the name, while others say, we’re due a whole other Frank album by that name.
The new album, “Blonde”, was released this Saturday. The 17 track album has been sending people on a feels journey.
#Blonde just took me on a journey ? ? ? Pink + White, Self Control ?? The entire second half ? ? ? I’m emotionally unstable ?

But Frank though! Keeps us waiting for four years and then drops two pieces in three days – imagine.
