2017 has seen a flurry of activity from the famous recluse Frank Ocean, mostly thanks to his “Blonded Radio” spot on Apple Music’s Beats 1 platform. Each of its first three episodes has brought us new tracks: the Calvin Harris single “Slide”, featuring Frank and Migos; the solo track “Chanel”; and most recently, “Biking”, featuring Jay Z and Tyler the Creator.
Over the weekend, Frank continued to release Endless/Blonde b-sides on his “Blonded Radio”. On early Sunday morning, episode 004 was broadcast and it came with a brand new solo track called “Lens”, a piece more impressionistic than almost anything on Blonde or Endless. Later on, he shared a different version of the track with Travis Scott. Listen to the full episode on Apple Music or listen to “Lens” below.
Frank wasn’t done yet, though. After midnight on Monday, “Blonded Radio” went live once again, bearing yet another new tune. This time it was a remix of Endless track “Slide on Me” featuring Young Thug. You can listen to the track toward the end of the two-hour episode here.
