Frank Ocean has hinted that he is close to finishing his new album.

The R&B singer is known to be working on the follow up to his 2012 debut 'Channel Orange' and shared an image of himself in the studio earlier this year. Ocean shared another update with fans last night (April 9), suggesting that he may be able to finish the album this coming weekend.

Posting on Tumblr, Ocean said that if he does not attend Coachella (where he is not due to perform) to see OutKast, he could wrap up work on the album, though he is keen to see Andre 3000 and Big Boi's long awaited return. "I might skip on Coachella to stay in the groove and finish this bitch. I feel like they're finna wild out though. Fuck it. Bring the helicopter out," he wrote.

Ocean previously stated that he would not release any new music until this summer. Back in October 2013, Ocean responded to a fan question about new material on his Tumblr blog, saying "when summer comes round again", when asked when he'd be releasing new music.

Coachella takes place across two weekends this spring – April 12-14 and April 19-21 – in Indio, California, with headliners Muse and Arcade Fire joining OutKast on the bill.
