Listen to the instrumentals from Frank Ocean’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ stream

Fan collects together background music from Ocean’s stream

A dedicated fan has captured all the instrumentals played in the background of Frank Ocean’s cryptic live stream.

Over the past week, the R&B singer has been teasing his new album ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ with a stream on his official website.

The mysterious video shows Ocean chopping pieces of wood while ambient music plays out in the background.


Thankfully, for the less patient among us, someone has recorded all 21 tracks played during the stream so far and uploaded them to SoundCloud.

Ocean is due to finally release his long-awaited album tomorrow, according to a report from The New York Times.

‘Boys Don’t Cry’ will have a two week exclusivity period on Apple Music before becoming widely available on other services.

Ocean is also expected to release a major music video and a printed publication to accompany the record.

The singer-songwriter’s new album was initially expected to be released in 2015, but its delay has contributed to mass frenzy among fans.


In March, Ocean’s producer Malay said that the album was “maybe a month away”.

Ocean’s friend Chance The Rapper has said that he is “making a masterpiece”, while James Blake has worked on the album and has called it “better” than ‘Channel Orange’.

In February this year new Frank Ocean music was leaked online, supposedly after a secret listening party. The untitled snippets were later removed due to copyright claims.

Ocean’s previous album ‘Channel Orange’ was released in July 2012.
