Frank Ocean hit the stage on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, performing alongside John Mayer (who’s featured on his Channel Orange album). Displaying his great knack for timing once again, Ocean followed his performance by releasing the new video for “Pyramids.” Check it out above.
With a song that’s almost 10 minutes long, you’ll be happy to know that the video, which plays out like a short film, is only about 8 minutes long. It finds the New Orleans native on a motorcyle making his way through the desert and one pit stop turns into quite the interesting experience.
Frank Ocean hit the “Saturday Night Live” stage on September 15 and performed two songs. Against a vintage arcade backdrop, Frank sang “Thinking About You” and an abridged version of “Pyramids” and was accompanied by singer John Mayer on guitar. Fans loved the performance on Twitter. “John Mayer playing guitar for @FrankOcean…. night. made. Slam dunk,” tweeted one fan while another poked fun, “Wait- Is Frank Ocean really playing PacMan while John Mayer is doing this guitar solo?”
