While the world remains on lockdown, two new tracks from the reclusive singer have surfaced when fans need it most. Ocean first debuted the songs, titled “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” during his PrEP+ parties last fall in New York.
Fans who ordered the 7″ vinyl of “Little Demon” were told last month that they would receive a “new, unreleased Frank Ocean song” instead. The vinyls finally shipped and started arriving this week featuring acoustic renditions of the two tracks, along with remixes by Justice and Sango. Fans have shared the playbacks on social media and SoundCloud ( HipHop-N-More).
As the blonded.blog points out, “Dear April” has “some real Endless vibes.” Ocean sings in Spanish on “Cayendo,” which is more reminiscent of 2016’s Blonde era.
Ocean hasn’t released new music since “In My Room” and “DHL” last fall. There were rumors that he planned to roll out a larger collection of music ahead of his Coachella set in April. He is now slated to headline the festival in October.
UPDATE: “Dear April (Side A – Acoustic)” and “Cayendo (Side A – Acoustic)” have officially been released to streaming services. Listen below.
