Jonah Bromwich's favorite Pharaoh was Monch. Frank Ocean seems to have taken advantage of his Kanye/Jay affiliation to hype his upcoming album with the single “Pyramids,” which I’m sure has resulted in the spontaneous combustion of several Illuminati conspiracy theorist brains. “Pyramids” is more Shakespearean than it is Bavarian, a kind of mash-up of Othello and Antony and Cleopatra , which uses the history of the Egyptian queen’s death by snakebite as an allegory for the betrayal of a lover. It’s a highly intelligent song, subtle and so excellent that you could listen for years [...]

When did every body start making teaser trailers for their new records? Frank Ocean ’s the latest artist to drop a preview video for a new album called Channel Orange , coming July 17. You won’t learn much from the video: though it’s pretty cool, it’s inscrutably cryptic. We are digging the new, Egyptian-themed (yes) song it features – a fantastic, shuddering beat, sexy crooned lyrics from Ocean , you know the deal – but under two minutes doesn’t feel like long enough to give us a real taste. The [...]

Maybe it's a song. Maybe it's a full length project. Whatever the case may be, R&B's most popular enigma of the moment, Frank Ocean, is prepping the release of channel [...]
I was just having a convo yesterday with #YSAFam artist, Eye Traveler , about how Frank Ocean missed his window to become explosively great after WTT . Now we get visuals from Frank for a track that appears to have no name. The trailer gives us a solid minute and a half of a never before heard track from Mr. Ocean and then a message at the end that simple states, "Channel Orange, 7.17.12." I guess that's enough to expect some good sounds from the young R&B singer. I hope this is the start [...]
