MP3: Frank Ocean - "Back"


Frank Ocean is easily Odd Future’s least confrontational member – his smooth R&B-influenced slow-jams don’t exactly invite immediate feelings of outraged intrigue like those of any fellow members of the Los Angeles collective (after all, the man’s written for Justin Bieber). The internet's latest Frank Ocean offering is “Back” – a track that until recently has only been available in almost un-listenable quality – and it even further establishes him as an outstanding new talent in his field.

What with his versatile, liquid voice and effortless control of an orchestral beat, it’s astonishing we aren’t hearing Ocean’s croon on Top 40 radio yet. “Back” might very well be the song that gets him there – it’s instantly, unavoidably accessible, likely even to your mom.
