Another summer has arrived, and fans of Frank Ocean have begun to dismiss the talented artist from conversations. Only popping up on occasion with a Tumblr blog post, or random appearance, the singer/songwriter has been mostly reclusive while crafting his much-anticipated sophomore album Boys Don’t Cry.
Well, Ocean has now teased his fans once again with a pending release date on his website, BoysDontCry.co.
The artist posted an image of a library due date card. The first date on the card, marked July 2015, is scratched off, followed by a series of dates, and ending with July 2016.
To go along with this card, Ocean also republished a post from last year that suggested Boys Don’t Cry would be out in July 2015.
The album follows his 2012 critically acclaimed LP channel ORANGE. The celebrated project earned Ocean a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
In February, fans heard leaked audio of new music that was reportedly recorded at a secret listening session. In May, Chance the Rapper told Complex that Ocean was somewhere “very, very focused on his catalog” and “making a masterpiece.”
So, maybe a surprise release has been set for this month. We will have to wait and see… Are you still excited to hear Frank’s new album?
