Frank Ocean released a video via his tumblr earlier that after watching left me feeling both happy and confused. Thankfully it didn't take long for Def Jam to clear up the confusion. The released visual consists of some new music by Ocean, rumoured to be a song called "Pyramids". While the concept of the video still remains unclear, what is clear is that the highly anticipated new Frank Ocean album is coming... very soon. Channel Orange is the name of Frank Oceans upcoming album that will be available everywhere July 17th, 2012. The Odd Future associate has flourished since his release of what I would regard as a masterpiece of a mixtape, Nostalgia/Ultra. With a few big time assists on Watch The Throne and newer gems like "Thinking About You" , you can be certain Frank has got something special cooked up with the upcoming release of Channel Orange. Check the album trailer below and stay tuned for more info. Update: If the album announcement wasn't enough, Frank has just announced a "Channel Orange" Tour. July 31st he will be making a stop in Toronto. We'll keep you updated for more info on that show. For now here are the 14 dates.
Wash the brain, don't brainwash and allow people to think for themselves. But present amazing options, the best you know what to be. Kanye West.Some great footage has been released today and Kanye West has truly inspired me. Say what you want about Ye but after watching these following videos I feel like accomplishing a trilion more things tonight. I will let the footage speak for itself, the first video is behind the scenes of the WTT tour and the second is titled the Chi which shows you where Kanye grew up.
I'm in the pursuit of awesomeness, excellence is the bare minimum. Kanye West.
One Tour....One Stage....26 Cities. I'm so happy that I've copped my tickets early, I'm going Nov 24 in Toronto which is the second date in T Dot. Are you going to WTT concert? If so what are you expecting? What songs do you think they should perform? Let me know.
Okay people. NOW you should be getting excited for this shit to drop. A nice 10 minute documentary showcasing some footage from the recording sessions while Watch The Throne was being made. Yes you can hear some snippets of new tracks, verses (what I think I hear is Illest Motherfucker Alive when they're talking about it being emotional - sounds DOPE!). The album releases August 1st for Digital Download.
