Frank Ocean live stream: new album or epic troll?
Frank Ocean

Anticipation over Frank Ocean’s second album has reached peak levels following the upload of a live stream on the artist’s website.

Don’t get your hopes up just yet though: the stream consists of a black and white image of two desks. Whether these two desks can keep frenzied, impatient fans pleased remains to be seen.

There is an Apple Music logo in the top right corner which suggests this is more than a tease from the singer.

The enigmatic artist has been teasing Boys Don’t Cry since 2015, three years after the release of his acclaimed first album, Channel Orange.

More recently, a picture of a library book stamp reading ‘July 2016’ was uploaded to Ocean’s website; however fans were let down again when the release didn’t materialise.

Perhaps Ocean is releasing his album one day after he promised as one final troll to his audience?

Here are a few highlights from the live stream anyway…

Two desks looking striking


Two desks looking frightened


Two desks looking startled


Two desks looking bashful



We could finally be getting a new Frank Ocean album
