Frank Ocean Takes A Singing Break On ‘Blue Whale’

Frank Ocean was in New York on Monday (September 25) to perform a 1-hour set at The Fader and Vitamin Water’s Uncapped concert, and he also thought it was a good night to share a new song with his fans. Ocean posted a stream of the previously unheard track “Blue Whale” on his Tumblr.

“Blue Whale” still carries Ocean’s mellow vibe, but diverts from his recently released Channel Orange album, as it finds him kicking a few rhymes instead of singing as much as he’s used to. Listen to ‘Blue Whale’ here.

Last week Ocean premiered the 8-minute video for his masterpiece ” Pyramids,” after performing on the season opener of “Saturday Night Live” with some help from John Mayer. “My whole goal during the post was to achieve something that felt real and surreal without it being overdone,” the video’s director Nabil Elderkin told MTV News. “I wanted to give the same kind of dark feeling that was achieved in both those films. I just did it in my own way.”
