Update #3: The magazine comes with Frank Ocean’s third studio album, according to Pigeons & Planes. Still unconfirmed.

On Friday, Frank Ocean shared a visual album on Apple Music called Endless featuring Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood, James Blake, Sampha, and Jazmine Sullivan. Though you wouldn’t know it—Endless is as oblique as they come. It perplexed fans—us included.

On Saturday morning he shared another new video, this time for a brand new single called “Nikes”. This release felt more like the Channel Orange follow-up fans were expecting. 

Several reports, including those from The New York Time, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and XXL have sources saying a second new Frank Ocean album will be released this weekend. This pop-up announcement is the latest development in Frank’s elaborate Boys Don’t Cry story.
