Pigeons and Planes
Rumors have been brewing as Frank Ocean posted a teaser for something he is calling “Channel Orange.” The teaser was posted on his blog with very little (read: zero) explanation of what this 1:45-minute long video will become.
Def Jam has now confirmed that Channel Orange is in fact the new album from Ocean, and it’s out July 17th.
Frank Ocean teases the masses with a snippet of new material. The much too brief audio is accompanied with a visual that moves along the shape of a car. More interestingly, the clip concluded with the words,CHANNEL ORANGE 7.17.12. The lyrics indicate that it could be his song “Pyramids.” We can also take things a little bit further and start assuming that this is a trailer for his upcoming new full-length that he announced back in January. Watch and listen above.
Update: The NJ Underground delivers some interesting information and hints at news that Mr. Ocean will embark on a Channel Orange tour this July. Dates at San Francisco’s The Warfield Theatre and Philadelphia’s Union Transfer have already been announced. Stay tuned.
