As most of you probably already know, after THREE years since releasing “Channel Orange”, Frank Ocean has announced that he will be putting out a new album in the July entitled “Boys Don’t Cry”. Ocean made this announcement on his Tumblr April 6 along with the picture below.
He captioned the picture “‘I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.’ #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY”. People speculated that in 2012, before “Channel Orange” was released, Frank tweeted “#CHANNELORANGE”. So it’s safe to say we can trust the album hashtags and expect something from Mr. Ocean in a few more months.
So where am I going with this..
In celebration of this amazing announcement, I wanted to share some of my favorite Frank Ocean covers.
The first two were by some very talented guys. The second singer, Cortez Shaw, had a lot of soul in his voice.
And the last post I wanted to share is from Frank Ocean himself and his song “Strawberry Swing”. It’s not much of a cover, but it’s alright. It rather samples Coldplay’s song “Strawberry Swing”.
