Frank Ocean is full of surprises, and it seems a new album may be his latest.
At the conclusion of the artist’s exclusive Cyber Monday Endless sale, the aloof artist shared a cryptic message on his Tumblr, a medium he’s long turned to for revealing information. The message included that the now 30-year-old had, in fact, finished another album before he turned 30.
“Well I️ made the album before 30,” it begins. “I JUST AINT PUT THAT BITCH OUT!” He credited the phrase as “quotes from an interview I haven’t given haha.” It seems his reference refers to a 2012 tweet where he declared, “5 albums before 30.”
Ocean just recently surpassed 30, so if things go as planned it seems the album may arrive sometime soon. But knowing Ocean, and how long he’s sat on material in the past, who knows when the new music will see the light of day. Surprises were always kind of his forte anyways.
