“Fake news”: Frank Ocean denies ‘Endless’ is coming to streaming services

At last!

Frank Ocean has denied that his visual album, ‘Endless’, will soon land on all major streaming services.

Last week, Billboard reported that the 45-minute video record was being released for the first time as a “proper, track-by-track album”. ‘Endless’ is currently an Apple Music exclusive after it premiered on Ocean’s website in 2016.

But Ocean has told fans that the visual album will not be released on streaming platforms. On Instagram, he took a screenshot of a Complex Music report of the news, writing: “[EDIT: sorry guys it’s FAKE NEWS😔 — confirmed by frank] #frankocean.”

Representatives had seemingly told Billboard that the record had been delayed and would arrive “soon”. The release would follow ‘Endless’ dropping on vinyl, CD, DVD and VHS back in April 2018.

‘Endless’ preceded the release of Ocean’s last full-length LP, ‘Blond’, by one day in August 2016. The two releases arrived four years after his debut ‘channel ORANGE’.

In other news, on Thursday (January 24) Ocean teased a cover of sza’s ‘The Weekend’.

Ocean posted a video of what appeared to be him driving a car with the rendition blaring out of the stereo.

Sza’s song appears on her debut album ‘CTRL’, which was released in 2017. Read NME’s four-star review.
