Frank Ocean is back. Hours after teasing new collaborations with Justice and Sango on his site this afternoon, the enigmatic artist hit Beats 1 with a surprise episode of his blondedRADIO show (his first transmission since Christmas 2018,) premiering the new song, “DHL,” live on air.
Hosted by Vegyn and Roof Access with adlibs from Ocean throughout, the show also featured morsels of live audio from his PrEP+ club night in NYC, as well as the full versions of the teased tracks, “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” (which are now available to purchase on 7″ vinyl via Ocean’s site.) You can hear the episode in full via Apple Music.
“DHL” marks Ocean’s first original solo release since 2017’s “Provider” (also released in an episode of blondedRADIO.) The artist turned in a dreamy cover of the classic Henry Mancini ballad, “Moon River,” in February of last year and claimed to be working on a follow-up to his 2016 albums, blond(e)d and Endless, in a recent W Magazine interview.
Hear Frank Ocean’s “DHL” below along with a playlist of the tracks featured in tonight’s episode of blondedRADIO.
