Frank Ocean Channel Orange Comment Party

By Corban Goble / July 9, 2012

Ever since Jimmy Fallon tweeted about a “big announcement” regarding Frank Ocean’s forthcoming Channel Orange earlier today — Ocean is scheduled to perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in a little over an hour — we suspected that we might be hearing the music a little sooner than later. Even with those suspicions, it’s still a pretty huge surprise that the entirety of Channel Orange, one of the year’s most anticipated releases, hit the web a week early (via iTunes). Everyone seemed to love the new singles “Pyramids” and “Sweet Life,” so let’s talk about those, and the rest of the album, below as we listen together. It’s like Watch The Throne all over again! UPDATE: Channel Orange is streaming for free at Frank’s Tumblr.
