Slated to appear on Odd Future’s forthcoming mixtape “The OF Tape Vol. 2,” “White” clocks in at just over two minutes, but it’s two minutes of pure bliss! Set to a simple and sparse track, Frank’s buttery and sultry vocals carry the entire song, creating the perfect backdrop for his poignant lyrics: “Could this be Earth, could this be light/ Does this mean everything’s going to be alright/ One look out my window there’s trees talking like people/ I dreamt of storms, I dreamt of sound/ I dreamt of gravity keeping us around.” Straight-up poetry, y’all.
Listen to Frank Ocean’s “White” after the jump.
Though we love Frank’s more pop-rooted jams like “Novacane” and the Drake-esque “Dreamkilla,” there’s just something about the simplicity of “White” that really tugs at our heartstrings. I don’t know about you, but I’m tooootally thinking “White” for my wedding song/ first dance with my tall (preferably rich) husband. Just gotta find an actual boyfriend first…
