It Looks Like Frank Ocean’s Album Is Imminent
Earlier this morning we reported on Frank Ocean’s brother trolling fans with a fake link for Ocean’s new album, which is most likely called Boys Don’t Cry. Now it looks like the record, which was originally tipped for July release, might really be imminent, and yes, Boys Don’t Cry appears to be the title. A visit to frankocean.com will redirect you to boysdontcry.co, a Shopify web store with a Frank Ocean header. There’s nothing there right now except a promise that it will be open soon and a prompt asking for a password. We’re guessing pretty soon you’ll be able to buy Ocean’s album there in two versions. Get stoked!
UPDATE: The web store has been replaced with a proper website at frankocean.com, but the only content there for far is Ocean’s old Tumblr post promising two versions of the album, date/time/location info, plus some tabs that don’t work yet such as “VIDS,” “AUDIO,” and “GET.” Here’s a screenshot I just grabbed from beautiful suburban Ohio:
