WATCH: Frank Ocean's entire new album livestreams on his website
A different way to showcase a new album
Musician Frank Ocean took to his website boysdontcry.co to livestream a black-and-white video of his entire latest work, a "visual album" that shows people working on a spare set while music plays in the background.
The "Endless" video is a separate project from Ocean's anticipated new album, Rolling Stone confirmed.
The music album is set for release exclusively on Apple Music. It was originally called "Boys Don't Cry" but Ocean went with the shorter alternate title instead.
Fangirling so hard.
Collaborators and classical flavor
"Endless" features collaborations with a number of soulful and talented musicians across many genres, including British R&B vocalist Sampha, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, James Blake and Jazmine Sullivan.
The songs also feature a classical edge, with violas, violins and cellos from the London Contemporary Orchestra conducted by Robert Ames.
Frank Ocean's "Endless" title is inspired by the endless wait, my endless tears, my endless trust and abandonment issues— mrs. worldwide (@mommymilfiger) August 19, 2016
