Watch Frank Ocean Cover Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees”

By Tom Breihan / December 11, 2012

Frank Ocean continues to own our soul. Last Thursday, the man played a short set at a press conference for Spotify. And during that set, he broke out a minute-and-a-half cover of Radiohead’s 1995 all-timer “Fake Plastic Trees,” using it to flex that buttery croon over luxuriant synth-pillows. It’s too short, it’s a crappy fan-made video, it’s got chatter and crowd-whoops and general just-OK fidelity, but it’s still something you need to watch. Check it out below.

Ocean’s Channel Orange is, of course, out now on Def Jam.
