Frank Ocean has finally announced details of his commercial debut album release.

The Odd Future cohort will put out 'Channel Orange' on July 16 (July 17 in the US) through the Def Jam label, according to a Pitchfork report. The singer is trailing the album release with a short video, which you can watch below.

Earlier this year Frank Ocean ditched plans to officially release 'Nostalgia, Ultra', the acclaimed mixtape he self-released last year. Instead of re-releasing the mixtape, Ocean pledged to focus his time into his commercial debut album, which will now be out this summer.

This spring Ocean also claimed that The Eagles' Don Henley was threatening to sue him for his track 'American Wedding', a reinterpretation of The Eagles classic 'Hotel California', which appeared on the 'Nostalgia, Ultra' tape.

Frank Ocean appears on three of the tracks on Odd Future's recent 'OF Tape Vol 2', including a solo track titled 'White'.
