The musician featured on Frank Ocean’s ‘Endless’ and ‘Blonde’, and performed with the star at several dates following their release. Speaking about working with Ocean in a 2016 interview, Alex G said the collaboration had occurred after he received an invitation to the former Odd Future member’s studio before a show in London.

After meeting, the pair would get together “every couple of months” to record. “I don’t know why it happened,” Alex G said. “But that’s how it happened.”
