This morning’s webcast actually bore fruit! According to The New York Times, Frank Ocean will release his long delayed new album, Boys Don’t Cry, this Friday as an Apple Music exclusive. The album’s accompanying magazine will be available at the Apple Store.
It should be noticed that even the Times doesn’t fully trust Ocean to come through on Friday (“Given the number of delays the album has already had, it seems possible that Mr. Ocean could decide to put off the release beyond Friday.”)
Watch Frank Ocean perform “Forrest Gump” at the 2013 Grammys.
