Frank Ocean has released his first solo track in nearly two years. Entitled “DHL,” the prolific NOLA artist premiered the cut during his latest “blonded RADIO” broadcast, which saw the artist returning to Beats 1 first the first time since the 2018 Christmas episode last December. Near the end of the show, he released the track, releasing it via all streaming platforms. The track was originally teased on his Instagram story on December 18, 2018.
As is expected, the new cut sees Ocean following through with his usual sound, relishing in layered production from himself as well as Boys Noize. He promotes his usual lyrical motifs, continuing with his love for cars, troubling connection to drugs, and more.
On top of the new track, Ocean teased two new songs at his recent “PrEP+” club night in New York City. Titled “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” the new cuts equally enlist Justice and Sango for respective remixes. All three tracks are reportedly apart of Frank’s third studio album, which has yet to be named.
You can listen to the official version of “DHL” and take a peek at Justice and Sango’s respective remixes below. Both remixes are available for purchase via vinyl on Frank’s blonded.co website.
