Indeed, that’s how long it’s been since soulful crooner Frank Ocean set sail with his game-changing debut ‘Channel Orange’.
Now, after tending to his team (and by “tending” we mean replacing), the New Orleans native is hard at work at his eagerly awaited sophomore album.
And while no release date has been set in stone (or pencil), a new snap of the singer in The Church Studios in London has surfaced.

well that was an awesome week in the studio with my brother… the smiles say it all. #frankocean the genius.
Buzzed? We are.
In large part, it’s due to the qualitative slice of quality that was ‘Channel Orange’. It showcased Ocean’s lyrical, vocal, and storytelling skillset in a stellar way. Hence, we’re eager to see what he plans to bring to the table artistically this go round.
From a commercial standpoint, it’ll be uber interesting to see how the media mass handle another Ocean album. After all, it was only following his truth-baring “letter” that countless outlets jumped on his bandwagon. With two years having passed and the titillation of his “reveal” already milked in earnest by the media, will he still be pegged a hot commodity? If the material is as on-point as we believe it will be, then we sure hope so!
