As the world continued to tune into the 2016 Rio Olympics, Frank Ocean re-emerged during his mysterious live stream on his site on Thursday night (Aug. 18). The elusive crooner appeared to be drilling and hammering away at some staircase-esque structure in a bare warehouse accompanied by what sounds like new music.

The lowkey crooner worked on his special project to a soundtrack filled with breezy ballads, chill tunes and a rework of his previously released Isley Brothers cover of "At Your Best (You Are Love)," which was also covered by Aaliyah.

This post will be updated with more details as they become available.
