The stripped down two-minute track, reportedly titled "Memrise," features the singer-songwriter telling a lover how he imagines them, after asking to come over.

Ocean posted the song and its accompanying lyrics early Friday (Nov. 28) on his official tumblr.

Check out the lyrics below:

"I memorized the wayward expressions? / Never look down / Never let you see me down / ?I memorized the way no directions / ?Can I come over now? /  ?I’d like to stay a little while / ?I memorized your body exposed ?/ I could f--- you all night long ?/ From a memory alone / I never forget a face / ?Don’t go plastic on me ?/ Nothing’s set in stone ?/ You’re not dipped in gold / ?Dipped in gold ?/ You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold/ ?You are not on paper / You are not a copy / You’re so, you’re thick, so thick"

Ocean has been in the studio working on his follow-up to his 2012 debut studio album, Channel Orange, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. No word on whether "Memrise" wil be featured on his upcoming sophomore album. But let's hope the new album arrives soon so we can find out.
