♫♪  Frank Ocean - “Moon River”

Frank Ocean mega-fan right here

Following last August’s “Provider,” Frank Ocean took to Tumblr with a new track and a short message: “in the late nite.” The new song is actually an old one, though, as Ocean is heard here sharing his own exquisite, pitch-fucked rendition of “Moon River,” a song sung by Audrey Hepburn and written by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer for Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961). As the time of publishing, 1,696 comments about the track were made on YouTube. Here’s the top one: “yo why my pp hard rn”

There’s been no concrete information regarding a new release, but Frank Ocean has been teasing a release since late last year. As he posted on Tumblr: “‘WELL I️ MADE THE ALBUM BEFORE 30. I️ JUST AINT PUT THAT BITCH OUT!’ -QUOTES FROM AN INTERVIEW I️ HAVEN’T GIVEN HAHA.”

Frank Ocean: praised the world over, yet somehow sorely underrated. Listen to his take on “Moon River” here:
