While we await more information regarding his new album, it turns out that Frank Ocean may have another creative project up his sleeve.
One Reddit user decided to poke around the source code on the Calvin Klein website where Frank’s new campaign is hosted and found some text indicating that Frank’s getting ready to release a novel.
Yes, a novel.
Here’s the statement in full:
“Frank Ocean is one of the most artistic and enigmatic musicians working today. Though it has been more than four years since he released his debut studio album, ‘Channel Orange,’ interest in Ocean hasn’t waned. Instead, it’s increased.
“He is known for being a perfectionist, and a pursuant of creativity in all forms. He resists pressure and follows his own vision. He has published a magazine and worked on a novel while continuing to perfect his highly anticipated second album.
“Ocean shuns interviews and social media, and prefers instead to speak through his work. He has said that when it comes to understanding music, the most important thing is to just press play.
“Ocean is a powerful storyteller, using his own openness and honesty to create an emotionally intimate world in each of his songs. With his craft, his aim is not money, power, or fame, but to grow, progress, evolve and eventually be the absolute best.
“So while he continues to work on that, we’ll continue to wait, as long as it takes, because when Frank Ocean does something, he does it right. The wait will be worth it.”
Worth it? We certainly hope so.
