Frank Ocean - Wiseman

Frank Ocean surprises fans with a new track released via his Tumblr. Seemingly titled “Wiseman” (as revealed by a screen shot of the lyrics also posted on the artist’s Tumblr), the song outlines some of Ocean’s characteristic existential themes such as the true definition of a “strong man.” The caption for the song reads, “Django was ill without it,” which alludes to the track’s initial purpose as a part of the new Quentin Tarantino film Django Unchained. Sonically speaking, the song is driven by a reverb-heavy guitar, underlined by moments of heavy bass. In true Frank Ocean form, the track is brought to a conclusion through a gentle piano finale and solo bass portion that ends the track mid-sentence. It comes on the heels of rumors that channel ORANGE would be the artist’s last musical effort, which makes this track pack equal parts relief and beauty, even if only momentarily.
