Frank Ocean Has Recorded Ten Songs For His Next Album
In an interview with Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show last night (via NME, Frank Ocean revealed that he has recorded ten songs for his next album, a follow-up to last year’s Channel Orange.
He said: “I’m like 10,11 songs into this next thing. It’s another cohesive thing bordering on a concept album again. At the end of ‘Channel Orange’ there’s ‘Golden Girl’ and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record. I’m going to Bora Bora when I get back and setting up a studio there and see what happens.“
When asked who he wanted to work with, he replied: “I was in the studio with Pharrell just yesterday (February 18), Tyler came by and we were just playing records. As far as collaborations in the future for me, I don’t know. There’s this kid King Krule who is really sick and I would love to do something with. He has a special voice, really cool. I’m getting in with Danger Mouse when I get back to the States. Usually when I meet these guys if we happen to write something then we do but it’s good to just feel these things out. I love Tame Impala, Tyler put me onto them and they’re wicked. Their music has a freedom to it.“
He is currently in the UK before the Brit Awards tonight, where he is nominated for the International Male Solo Artist with Gotye, Bruce Springsteen, Jack White and Michael Buble. It was also revealed this week that he will perform this year’s Wireless Festival in London along with Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Kendrik Lamar.
