Frank Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry Is Out This Friday

We are only four days away from Frank Ocean’s long-awaited follow-up to Channel Orange. The New York Times reports that Boys Don’t Cry will be available Friday as an Apple Music exclusive. Rejoice!

Per the NYT, “The release is also expected to include a major video and a printed publication called Boys Don’t Cry that will be distributed at Apple stores.” So last year’s promise of a zine is finally coming true as well. Def Jam has not confirmed the release, but the Times cites a source “with knowledge of the release plans.”

Friday’s impending album release kinda-sorta explains why Ocean launched a livestream today featuring some light woodworking and abstract instrumental music from a giant boombox. But only kinda-sorta. But honestly, who cares because Frank Ocean’s new album is only four days away!

UPDATE: It’s now Thursday night, and there are some new things happening on Frank’s livestream. The feed now shows him wearing what appears to be a David Bowie shirt while continuing his home improvement project. Occasionally, some new instrumental guitar music plays in the background.
