At last. Frank Ocean's new songs are out for the world to hear.
His long-teased tracks "Dear April" and "Cayendo" were released on streaming platforms Friday at midnight, coming after 7" vinyl editions of the new songs began shipping to fans, suggesting the new music would finally be widely available. And now it is.
As we previously mentioned, Ocean had been teasing the tracks for months. He previewed versions of them live last fall in a club in New York.
It's possible the timing of the release had been long planned. Next week would have marked the beginning of Coachella's annual two-weekend fest, where Ocean was scheduled to be one of the headliners. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, organizers have postponed the Indio festival until October.
