“Detroit, Chicago, techno, house [and] French electronic,” states Frank Ocean about the sound of his new music in a revealatory new cover story for W Magazine.

“I think for a while I’d like to get away from work that’s solitary by nature,” he told the magazine in regards to the collaborative nature of the untitled project. “I’ve never been in a band or had a songwriting partner or been with a group, so it’s always been a lot of time on my own writing and doing the work. I like the parts of the process where I work with session musicians or with other record producers or featured artists and guest vocalists…. in spaces where I’m not the expert.“

Having released his last studio album, Blond, independently, Ocean also admitted to enjoying being on nobody’s timetable in regards to its impending drop.

“In order for me to satisfy expectations, there needs to be an outpouring of my heart or my experiences in a very truthful, vulnerable way,” he admits in the story. “I’m more interested in lies than that. Like, give me a full motion-picture fantasy.”
