Is this another new album tease?
What's he building in there? That's the question Frank Ocean fans were asking on Monday morning (Aug. 1) when the enigmatic singer posted an update (of sorts) on his Boysdontcry.co site, in the form of an Apple Music-hosted live stream depicting a pair of workbenches. So far, no humans have come into frame in the video, which occasionally has the muffled sounds of people speaking in the background, but came with no commentary. (The video, which has a tag on it with the word "endless," does not work on all browsers, but you can watch it here.)
Ocean has reportedly been working on the follow-up to his smash 2012 Channel Orange album for more than a year, but so far there hasn't been any official word on when it might be released. The singer has been a ghostly presence since completing the touring in support of Orange, popping up on occasional projects like Kanye West's The Life of Pablo, James Blake's The Colour in Anything and Calvin Klein's 2016 campaign, but leaving fans in the dark as to when they might hear new music.
