I'm surprised there isn't a thread about him in this section. Well, looks like he's working on a new album :D

'It's another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again,' the singer-songwriter says.

After taking home two Grammys more than a week ago (Sunday, Feb. 10), Frank Ocean revealed more details of his upcoming sophomore album to Zane Lowe of BBC Radio.

The singer-songwriter shared that he’s "like 10, 11 songs " into the effort. "It's another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again," he continued.

Frank Ocean expressed a desire to explore a feeling extending from "channel Orange." "At the end of 'channel ORANGE' there's "Golden Girl," and it's this beach scene," he said. "And I kind of want it to extend that feel into the next record all together, kind of make it that theme."

Ocean plans on working in Bora Bora for a few weeks, which coincides perfectly with his proposed "beach theme." Frank Ocean hinted on looking into collaborations for his upcoming album, sharing interest in King Krule and Tame Impala. He confirmed working with Pharrell Williams and plans to work with Danger Mouse.

Lucky bugger, working in Bora Bora. Have been there myself (on a cruise), it is lovely.

Wanting to work with Tame Impala too? Oooh....would love to hear some Solitude Is Bliss vibes on the next album.
Let's embrace the point of no return.

Apparently he's working with Madonna for the soundtrack of Lenny Kravitz's movie. I want a gorgeous ballad like I Miss You.

I don't like that he's doing quite a lot of features lately... I want him to be a bit more choosy! His main focus should be his own music and features other artists then only rarely and epic tunes!
