Frank Ocean's New Album Likely Just Got A New Release Date

A year overdue, <i>Boys Don't Cry</i> might finally be here soon

Frank Ocean is up to something. Again. Probably.

On Saturday morning, a new visual message appeared on the R&B singer's website (via Pitchfork) in the form of a date-stamped card, the kind you'd find in the back of a library book. The dates span from July 2015 to July 2016 with 15 in between, though the exact day of the last one is obscured.


Frank Ocean Release Date

It's not a stretch to imagine this as a tease for Ocean's next album, Boys Don't Cry, which could potentially drop later this month. Last year, he teased a July 2015 release date for the album, the follow-up to 2012's critical smash Channel Orange, with a widely circulated image of him with a stack of magazines. Since then, snippets of music have popped up, and Ocean's producer Malay even mentioned in March that the new album could be ready in "maybe a month."

We know better than to get our hopes up, but this latest announcement actually does sound legit. So yeah. Frank, we're ready.

Anyway, here's "Thinkin Bout You."
