While the music world waits for Frank Ocean‘s new album, pages from its accompanying magazine have allegedly leaked online.
‘Boys Don’t Cry’, the long-awaited follow-up to the R&B singer’s critically acclaimed 2012 debut ‘Channel Orange’, was first expected to be released in July 2015 but when it failed to surfaced, fans speculated that it would be released in July of this year instead. The latter deadline has now passed and the album still hasn’t arrived, despite reports that it would stream via Apple Music last Friday (August 5).
When the album was first announced last year, Ocean uploaded a picture of a magazine – also called Boys Don’t Cry – to Tumblr. The magazine is expected to come along with the album release.
Now fans are claiming that the magazine will be a digital publication, published via Apple, with alleged pages from it being posted to Tumblr. You can see pictures from it below.
Despite a recent livestream suggesting Ocean’s record will be released soon, fans are now speculating that the record will actually be out in November instead.
Ocean posted a “due date” library-style card in July, which suggested the record had been pushed back more than 15 times. On it, July 2016 was stamped in red, leading people to believe that was when the album was coming.
The card also featured the date November 13, 2016 stamped in black, as Fuse notes, and it’s being suggested that that is ‘Boys Don’t Cry”s true release date.
