Frank Ocean provided fans with some new music to enjoy on Saturday (October 19). The reclusive singer debuted a track titled “DHL” during the first edition of his Beats 1 Radio show Blonded Radio 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 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.”
