Happy 27th birthday Frank Ocean. We really miss you -- and can't seem to figure out exactly where you've been hiding, or when we'll be able to hear that new music you've been recording.
The last time we got an album update was months ago, when Mr. Ocean and producer Nabil both posted photos from the studio. Nabil captioned his picture, "Frank in the lab.. Making sophomore album game," so we know that it's coming...at some point.
Other than that, we know that it might be just a little bit influenced by the Beatles and the Beach Boys.
“When I was making the first [album] there were a group of artists that I listened to, just for inspiration and to absorb the energies,” he told MTV News last year. “It was a lot of Stevie Wonder, and this time it’s a lot of Beach Boys and Beatles and whatnot, so we’ll see how it trickles into the music and the final product. I can’t say much other than that.”
So, as far as music, that's pretty much all we've got. But, in terms of what Frank Ocean looks like these days, we know that his hair is blue. Very blue.
