Frank Ocean has once again shown his true diversity, performing a hauntingly awesome cover of Radiohead’s track Fake Plastic Trees. With the stripped-down performance, consisting merely of his iconic vocals and a keyboard, Ocean enticed the crowd at the intimate Spotify party last Thursday.
After shooting to fame through the release of his debut album Chanel Orange, Frank Ocean managed to grab a cheeky six Grammy nominations and several television appearances. The more conservative member of Odd Future still owes us an appearance for bailing on the 2012 installation of Future Music Festival to work on his album. I’m not complaining, the album was definitely worth it, yet his presence is still a necessity.
The minute-long cover served as an introduction to one of his other tracks; however, one cannot go past this video without a sense of admiration and respect. Anyway, here is the cover itself, in its full beauty. But goddamn, I’m a fan; now all we need is a cover album of all Radiohead tracks from the man himself.
