Frank Ocean recently announced that his sophomore LP Channel Orange is set for release next month, via a teaser video on his tumblr, and quickly followed that up with the first cut from the album, ‘Pyramids’. The nearly 10-minute track is a glorious, funky pop opus which showcases Ocean’s brilliant vision, and reportedly features a guitar solo from John Mayer. It’s one hell of a track – easily one of the best of the year – and I have high expectations for Ocean’s follow-up to last year’s impressive Nostalgia, Ultra.
Channel Orange is due July 17. Watch a teaser for the album below.
