Hear New Frank Ocean Verses on the Extended Solo Version of "Biking"
Frank Ocean‘s Beats 1 show, blondedRADIO, has been good to us in the months since its debut. With no concrete air time or date, the show has served as a sacred space for a reclusive and deceptively-prolific musician to share new music and the sounds that inspire him.
His last broadcast arrived in the wee hours of Monday morning with a wave of unheard material, including an alternate version of “At Your Best (You Are Love),” a new collaboration with A$AP Rocky, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti, and an extended solo version of the previously-released loosie “Biking,” sans contributions from Jay Z and Tyler The Creator. In their place, Ocean paints a new verse to the breezy, guitar-lead cut. And though the alternate has since disappeared from the internets in its bootlegged form, Ocean has officially released his update. Stream it below.
Ocean recently canceled a pair of dates ahead of his return to the stage, but still has quite a few on the docket. Scroll on to peep the full itinerary.
