Frank Ocean provided fans with some new music to enjoy on October 19. The reclusive singer debuted a track titled “DHL” during the first edition of his Beats1 Radio show Blonded since last year’s Christmas episode.
He also shared snippets of two new singles, “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” via his Blonded website. Seven-inch vinyl copies of these songs are on sale for $15 each. According to the site, the vinyl will begin shipping in eight to 12 weeks. Although Frank Ocean hasn’t said anything about “DHL’ being a single for an album, he has recently talked about his next LP. Last month, Ocean spoke to W magazine about the musical inspirations for his follow-up to 2016’s Blonde.
“I’ve been interested in club, and the many different iterations of nightlife for music and songs,” he told W. “And so the things I look at now have a lot to do with those scenes: Detroit, Chicago, techno, house, French electronic.” He added, “I grew up in New Orleans, so the closest to the nightlife scene for me was New Orleans bounce, and that was a lot of trends. But it’s so much a part of my childhood and my youth that I don’t really go back to it so much as a touch point. I’m really looking forward. It’s kind of a mix for me.”
