Release date confirmed for Frank Ocean’s new album
Last spring, Frank Ocean announced that his sophomore album, Boys Don’t Cry would be released in July 2015. After months passing without a notice of a concrete release. A year after the album’s intended release, Ocean has finally confirmed a release date for his forthcoming followup to 2012’s Channel Orange.
Boys Don’t Cry will be available for purchase Friday, August 5 as an Apple Music exclusive for two weeks, before becoming available on all digital partners. With the sensational degree of anticipation that Ocean has attracted with his sophomore album’s extensive delay, it will be interesting to see if Boys Don’t Cry lives up to its hype.
