Over the weekend, Frank Ocean released a new song, “DHL.”
On the woozy track, the R&B star mumble-raps over a gentle, atmospheric beat: “All in a day then I paid for the studio rate, instead of the rent, yeah / Now I can hang in this bitch every day, wait for some inspiration to hit me / Look like I’m dressed for a hike but I really look like I’m in Paris and shit, yeah.”
Ocean also has more new music on the way: His official store lists two seven-inch vinyl singles for “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” which ship in about eight to 12 weeks’ time. Last Friday, he previewed both tracks at his brand-new queer club night PrEP+, which was headlined by Justice. The French electronic duo produced “Dear April,” while the producer Sango is credited on “Cayendo.”
Ocean’s last studio album was 2016’s Blonde, which was his first album as an independent artist. He’d fulfilled his contractual obligations with the label Def Jam by releasing the album Endless just days before dropping Blonde—a move that he discussed in an interview earlier this year.
