UPDATE: Hit “Watch Now” for the brand new Pyramids music video. NSFW warning.
Damn Frank Ocean works fast. Just a few hours after announcing that his Def Jam debut album would be titled Channel Orange, the groundbreaking producer and singer drops off some brand new music with Pyramids. A ten minute long, sprawling affair produced by Ocean himself, Pyramids is a hazy and ambient cut that manages to weave in soaring guitars and ‘90s funk synths by the time it’s finished. On the mic we get some more of Ocean’s trademark understated vocals as the Odd Future member lays down the tale of a love lost into the throes of a strip club, a strip club called Pyramid. (Or at least that’s my interpretation, frankly it’s going to take some work to figure this one out.) Considering Ocean’s obvious work ethic and a July 17 release date for his Channel Orange album I think we can expect more new music soon. In the meantime, enjoy decoding this one.
