One of the most lauded recording artists in the world Frank Ocean dropped a new single called ‘DHL’ yesterday.
The avant-garde R&B artist has been unusually active as of late, citing the influence of the club on his new material and throwing a once off club night in NY last week.
This has culminated in this new track :
It’ a new take from Ocean, no surprises there. Gone is the sweet sentimentality of Blonde, Ocean’s last full length and easily one of the decade’s definitive album. In its place is a lo-fi sensibility, an interest in layered, adjacent textures and meandering vocals.
New Frank Ocean in 2019 is a blessed thing.
