People are so desperate for the follow-up to Ocean’s near perfect 2012 release Channel ORANGE, that they’re digging around anywhere for information and one Redditor found that he had written a novel by looking through the code on Calvin Klein’s website.
By doing that they found a bio that doesn’t reveal too much more than that he’s amazing, which we already knew, but it does suggest he’s written a novel.
“He has published a magazine and worked on a novel while continuing to perfect his highly anticipated second album,” the bio reads referring to his magazine Boys Don’t Cry which was meant to come last July but never arrived and a novel which is new information.
It’s unknown whether this will be released or not but Ocean has proved himself to be a poetic writer time and time again on his Tumblr so it would no doubt be phenomenal. As will the second album if we ever live to see the day.
The bio ends saying, “the wait will be worth it,” and it better be right because Twitter really can’t take much more waiting. Ocean’s friend and fellow musician tweeted out today that the record is arriving “soon”. As to what “soon” means, we’re not so sure anymore.
Read the full Calvin Klein bio below.
“Frank Ocean is one of the most artistic and enigmatic musicians working today. Though it has been more than four years since he released his debut studio album, Channel Orange, interest in Ocean hasn’t waned. Instead, it’s increased.
He is known for being a perfectionist, and a pursuant of creativity in all forms. He resists pressure and follows his own vision. He has published a magazine and worked on a novel while continuing to perfect his highly anticipated second album.
Ocean shuns interviews and social media, and prefers instead to speak through his work. He has said that when it comes to understanding music, the most important thing is to just press play.
Ocean is a powerful storyteller, using his own openness and honesty to create an emotionally intimate world in each of his songs. With his craft, his aim is not money, power, or fame, but to grow, progress, evolve and eventually be the absolute best.
So while he continues to work on that, we’ll continue to wait, as long as it takes, because when Frank Ocean does something, he does it right. The wait will be worth it.”
