The Brit Award winning Frank Ocean has reportedly recorded a track with Martin Gore of Depeche Mode for the follow-up to his Grammy Award winning album, 'Channel Orange'.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Dave Gahan said that his bandmate Gore worked on a song for Ocean's new record alongside The Knife producer Christoffer Berg. Gahan said that they met Ocean in New York whilst they were recording.

"Suddenly in the doorway, I sensed this presence, and I realised there was this guy standing there just watching," said Gahan. "An assistant came up to me in between songs and said, 'Do you mind? Frank Ocean is here working in another studio and really wants to meet you guys.' I wouldn't have thought he would have even known who we are, but it turns out he's a big fan." He continued:

Martin and Christoffer Berg ended up doing a track with him, which I think is going to be part of his new record. Martin did some electronics and some modular synthesizer stuff he really wanted.


Frank Ocean recently revealed he has recorded a host of new tracks for his next album.

Appearing on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show earlier this week, Ocean said: "I'm like 10, 11 songs into this next thing. It's another cohesive thing bordering on a concept album again. At the end of 'Channel Orange' there's 'Golden Girl' and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record."

Frank Ocean will perform at this year's Wireless Festival in London alongside Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar.

Depeche Mode release their new album 'Delta Machine' on March 26. It is the band's first LP release since 2009. They will play two shows at London's O2 Arena on May 28 and 29.
