Frank Ocean Releases His Long-Awaited New Album, ‘Blond’

His first album since ‘Channel Orange’ has finally arrived.

After years of speculation, countless skipped deadlines, and a few weeks of ramped-up activity, Frank Ocean has finally released the much-anticipated follow-up to 2012's Channel Orange. It's called Blond and you can listen to it here.

Ocean released a visual album called Endless on Thursday night through Apple Music. The first track from Blond, "Nikes," was released in the early hours of this morning. The album features contributions from Beyoncé, Jamie XX, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Rick Rubin, Tyler, The Creator, Pharrell Williams, and Yung Lean.

Ocean shared a note on his Tumblr page about the release, thanking his fans for their patience: "I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE MAKING ALL OF THIS," he wrote. "THANK YOU ALL. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU WHO NEVER LET ME FORGET I HAD TO FINISH. WHICH IS BASICALLY EVERY ONE OF YA’LL. HAHA. LOVE YOU."
