Frank Ocean has got a lot of people talking about his sexuality – but his brilliant, beautiful new album is the real story.
Despite its faults, Channel ORANGE still marks Frank Ocean out as an intriguing and exciting artist. Beautiful composition. Very strong debut from Ocean and I expect more great things from him in the hopefully near future. Highlights include "Thinkin Bout You", "Super Rich Kids", and "Pyramids".
It’s hardly surprising, then, that excitement runs high ahead of Ocean’s official debut – especially after he recently caused a fresh news storm by revealing via his Tumblr that his first love had been a man – but this album is every bit as boldly conceived, brilliantly executed and irrefutably fresh as the hype has it.
To celebrate his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallo, Frank Ocean has posted the stream of his new album on his tumblr a week ahead of its official release on July 17th. You can listen to Channel Orange in its entirety here (or below). 2. Thinkin Bout You. 3. Fertilizer.

After reading Frank Ocean’s letter about his love for a man and how it influenced Channel Orange, I thought of a scene from Jonathan Lethem’s Fortress of Solitude. In the novel, which like Ocean’s songwriting draws heavily from the writer’s own experiences, two male friends engage in mutual masturbation.
