R&B crooner and songwriter Frank Ocean is hard at work on his followup to Channel Orange.
Ocean a GRAMMY-award winning singer, spoke about having already completed close to a dozen songs for the yet-to-be-named project.
In an interview with BBC Radio 1 host Zane Lowe this week, the openly gay singer said that his next project is one that will offer fans continuity and richness: “It’s another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again,” said Ocean. “At the end of Channel Orange, there’s ‘Golden Girl,’ and it’s this beach scene. And I kind of want it to extend that feel into the next record all together, kind of make it that theme.”
Ocean won two of the six GRAMMYs he was nominated for at this year’s 55th GRAMMY Awards including “Best Urban Contemporary Album” for 2012’s “Channel Orange” and another GRAMMY for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” for “No Church In The Wild”. Ocean was a winner in that category alongside Jay-Z, Kanye West and The-Dream.
