The way things are going, Frank Ocean might not even drop an album this year. However, for those who are a little bit more optimistic, even when he did fail to release the project on August 5, you can now sign up for a service that will send you a text as soon as Boys Don’t Cry drops. (650)82Ocean is a project by developer Shahzeb Khan and he’s found a way to develop a program that automatically checks platforms like Spotify, iTunes and even Twitter for Frank Ocean news. Once the program finds out there is in fact a release happening, the service will automatically send you a message with the link to the album. Plain and simple.

How do you sign up? Just enter your phone number or email on the service’s site. The next part is of course the wait, and with new rumblings of a November release (cross your fingers), this service could just be the thing to save you from being the last person to know.
