Frank Ocean 'Deep' Into Sophomore Album

Ocean's hard at work on his next effort and plans to hit the road as well.

Though Frank Ocean is less than a year removed from the release of his debut album “Channel Orange,” the thoughtful crooner is album hard at work on his sophomore effort.

On the 2013 Grammy red carpet, Frank told Billboard that he’s “knee-deep in the next record. [I’m] just taking my time with it." Just days ago producer Om’Mas Keith, who worked closely with Ocean on “Orange,” revealed to Billboard that Ocean notified him that they’ll be working soon.

Tonight Ocean also mentioned that he’ll embark on another tour in the coming months. He hasn’t gone on an official tour since last summer promoting “Orange,” opting instead for spot dates.
