Frank Ocean Joins James Blake On 3-Night Stretch Of UK Tour
Earlier this week, Frank Ocean announced that the long-awaited follow-up to his absolutely exceptional major label debut Channel Orange will be arriving this July in the form of Boy's Don't Cry. And while that in itself should be enough get the blood pumping, it's being reported that Frankie O. will be joining James Blake on three nights of touring in the UK. The two will meet tonight at Lakota in Bristol, tomorrow night at Roadhouse in Manchester and then again on Sunday at an undisclosed location in or around London. That's three nights of musical line-pushing that should hold you over until each the summer, wherein we'll definitely be getting some new ear candy from Ocean and we'll certainly be hoping for the same from Blake. It could prove to be a perfect opportunity to work out new tracks from the forthcoming LP, or simply run through some crowd favorites, but I'm sure you'd all prefer the former. There's no firm release date on Boy's Don't Cry as of yet, but you know we'll certainly have our eyes peeled for the goods. Check back for updates on the record in the weeks to come and for all of you across the pond, enjoy a weekend full of musical merriment. Peep the flyer below with Frank billed as BOYSDON'TCRY.
