Frank Ocean teased a new song on his Tumblr last night called “Memrise” and shared the lyrics to the snippet that he provided. Details about the followup to the Grammy Award-winning Channel Orange have been scarce, but we know he’s working with Hit-Boy and Rodney Jenkins and he hinted in another Tumblr post back in April that he was almost done with the record. The only new Ocean material we’ve gotten so far this year was his collaboration with Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Diplo that they did for Converse. Listen to the snippet and check out the lyrics that Ocean provided below.
I memorized the wayward expressions?
Never look down ?
Never let you see me down
?I memorized the way no directions
?Can I come over now
?I’d like to stay a little while ?
I memorized your body exposed
?I could fuck you all night long
?From a memory alone
I never forget a face
?Don’t go plastic on me ?
Nothing’s set in stone
?You’re not dipped in gold
?Dipped in gold?
You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold?
You are not on paper ?
You are not a copy ?
You’re so, you’re so..so thick, so thick
