Is the wait over finally over? Where’s Waldo…I mean Frank Ocean?
Ocean is set to release his next album, “Boy Don’t Cry,” on Friday with an exclusive deal from Apple Music. Hmmm maybe we can take him serious with this promise now. The release is also expected to include a video and a printed publication called “Boys Don’t Cry” that will be distributed at Apple stores.
Rumor has it that the album is expected to remain exclusive on Apple for two weeks before being released to other music platforms. Isn’t that what Tidal is for? Anywho, “Boys Don’t Cry” is one of the year’s (….let’s be honest its been longer than a year) most anticipated new albums! Ocean’s first since “Channel Orange” in 2012, was widely hailed by critics and nominated for six Grammy Awards. Ocean himself announced the new title three years ago. To further tease his fans, he included the image of an old-school library due date slip labeled “Boys Don’t Cry” on a website connected to the album with a series of stamped dates going back over a year. With so many delays DO NOT GET YOUR HOPES UP, however we do support the album release and have been for quite some time. We’re just tired of him playing.
