Frank Ocean teases the arrival of a new album

"The Recording Artist has since changed his mind about the singles model, and is again interested in more durational bodies of work..."

The wait for a new Frank Ocean album has been a long one - six and a half years in fact. However, with 2016's 'Blonde' only getting older, it looks like the superstar is finally teasing the arrival of a new project.

A cryptic message on the back of posters sold at his latest merch drop [pictured below] has given fans hope that an album is on the way.

A passage of text refers to a “fictitious Recording Artist” – seemingly Ocean - explaining how he preferred “the singles distribution model as opposed to the long-form album model,” calling the traditional album format “outdated” and that releasing singles is “more suited to modern consumption habits”.

This falls in line with Ocean's most recent output, arriving in the form of a number of one-off singles, including ‘DHL’, ‘In My Room’, ‘Cayendo’ and ‘Dear April’.

Further down the passage, however, it hints that the singer may have gone back on his anti-album opinions.

“The Recording Artist has since changed his mind about the singles model, and is again interested in more durational bodies of work,” it reads.

Ocean hasn't confirm the news himself but there seems to be more belief than ever within his fanbase that a new album is on the way.
