It is here. Frank Ocean has released the followup project to his 2012 project, channel ORANGE. Dubbed Blonde, the project completes years of anticipation and teasing from the enigmatic artist. It appears that the album comes out in two parts. Last year, Frank hinted at “two versions” of his Boys Don’t Cry, also repeating the line in his song, “Nikes,” which dropped earlier today. Some visitors of the pop-up stores got their hands on physical copy of the album, sharing the images via social media. The internet soon noticed that the tracklisting differed from the online version.

Both lists are almost identical while “Mitsubishi Sony” and “Easy” are exclusive to the physical version. “Facebook Story,” as well as others are exclusive to the online. View both versions below.

The album is unexpectedly low-key, with many quiet tracks and ballads. The magazine packaging refers to Blonde as Ocean’s third album. Stream it in its entirety Apple Music here.
