Frank held a secret listening party on Sunday and several clips from it surfaced.


Frank Ocean’s new album Boys Don’t Cry might finally be nearing a release.

Ocean hasn’t contributed new music aside from Kanye West’s “Wolves” track since 2012’s Grammy Award winning Channel Orange album, but that’s all about to change. Ocean hosted an exclusive, not-so-secret VIP listening party on Sunday to preview songs from the upcoming cut, which was originally meant for a release in July 2015, however a photographer in attendance uploaded (and since deleted) bits of it to the Internet. He captioned the offering a “very very secret frank ocean listening party.”

Not so much.

From what we can hear thus far, Frank brings the soul.

Last April, Ocean posted a photo of him contemplating which version of Boys Don’t Cry to release, saying “I got two versions. I got twoooo versions #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY.”
