Low-fi videos leaked from the US rumoured to be new music
Ocean – who released album ‘Channel Orange’ to critical acclaim in 2012 and picked up a Grammy award in the process – has reportedly held a secret listening party on Sunday night premièring new music, with as yet untitled snippets being uploaded to Soundcloud.
According to Fuse, the ‘Thinkin’ About You’ singer may have hosted a top secret VIP listening on Sunday night. The tunes were uploaded by a photographer to Soundcloud but have since been deleted.
The photographer captioned clips with “very very secret frank ocean listening party” and “#FRANKOCEAN NEW ALBUM SOUNDING ANGELIC AS FUCK” but video footage has been released with what sounds like Ocean’s vocals in the background.

In April 2015, Ocean posted a picture to his Tumblr, teasing what could have been a possible album release. “I got two versions. I got twoooo versions #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY,” wrote Ocean, who sat with a stack of magazines titled Boys Don’t Cry in the picture, which you can view here.
Ocean’s management are yet to confirm the leaked music (19.00 GMT, February 29)
