Frank Ocean might not use Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, but he can definitely hear fans who’ve been very patiently waiting for him to drop his third studio album.
His latest website update could very well indicate that new music is finally on the way. Although a release date for his follow-up to 2012’s Channel Orange hasn’t been set in stone, the singer-singwriter posted an elusive image of a library due date slip. The first stamped date is July 2015, when Ocean began teasing his new music, and the latest are from this year–July (yes, this month!) and November.
Fader noted that the November 13, 2016 date has been speculated by fans to be the date for a magazine following the new album’s release.
The website’s HTML code shows that the new post’s name is “Late.” Even Frank’s younger brother Ryan Breaux reposted the same picture on Insta, captioning it, “BOYS DON’T CRY #JULY2016.”
This theory goes along perfectly from a photo from April that seemed to tease a possible LP release, which Ocean’s website republished right under the due date library slip post. “I got two version. I got twoooo versions #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY,” he wrote, seen sitting with a stack of magazine titled (can you guess?) Boys Don’t Cry.
Low-quality rips of what could possible be his new songs have surfaced (and then disappeared) online back in February after a “very very secret listening party” supposedly went down.
