Frank Ocean unveils details of his new album

Finally, finally, finally. The wonderful, enigmatic, endlessly talented Frank Ocean has finally revealed some details for his forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2012’s groundbreaking Channel Orange.

As revealed on his Tumblr, the album will be called Boys Don’t Cry and it’s due out in July. He’s also shown what we assume to be the album’s artwork, and writing that there’s two different versions.

And some lyrics he shared on that post, although these don’t feature on the above song:

I memorized the wayward expressions
Never look down
Never let you see me down
I memorized the way no directions
Can I come over now
I’d like to stay a little while
I memorized your body exposed
I could fuck you all night long
From a memory alone

I never forget a face
Don’t go plastic on me
Nothing’s set in stone
You’re not dipped in gold
Dipped in gold
You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold
You are not on paper
You are not a copy
You’re so, you’re so..so thick, so thick
