It’s a known fact that the ever reclusive Frank Ocean is a man of very few words — instead, choosing to let his artistry speak for himself. Outside of penning an open letter showing his love and adoration for Prince, as well as one dedicated to the LGBTQ community in the wake of the tragic shooting at the Pulse nightclub, Christopher Edwin Breaux hasn’t had much to say.
Today, the Long Beach-born, New Orleans-raised singer/songwriter broke his radio silence once again, taking to his personal website to enigmatically announce news of his next album, Boys Don’t Cry and its arrival this month (July).
The message arrived in the form of a photo of a library card stamped in chronological order from July 2015 to July 2016 (see above). As most of you may remember, Frank teased something similar in April of last year, with a rep for the singer confirming that “a new album and his own publication” were due for release July 2015.
Ryan Breaux, Frank’s brother, also posted the image to Instagram with the following caption: “BOYS DON’T CRY #JULY2016.”
Fans are eager to hear new music from the introverted singer. The last time we heard anything new from Frank was his appearance on Kanye’s “Wolves” which also featured Sia and Vic Mensa, with Frank eventually getting his own solo version tacked on to TLOP.
