“The best song wasn’t the single…” is something of a mantra here, a quotable bit in a week where Frank Ocean has been particularly quotable. The ascendant R&B star turned folk hero follows up this week’s well circulated, poetic, brave must-read missive with a cut from his forthcoming LP Channel Orange. It’s called “Sweet Life,” it is a buttery funk jam for taking pills by pools, and it’s a download here:
Frank Ocean – “Sweet Life”
Channel Orange is out 7/17 via Def Jam.
