It may not be the second coming of deity but it is probably the closest thing to that. After nearly three years waiting for the follow up to Channel Orange, Frank freaking Ocean has announced that a brand new album will be hitting our earholes this July.
Frank made the announcement via his official tumblr, hinting that his album (named Boys Don't Cry) would have two versions and receive a July 2015 release.
This is big news considering Frank has flown way under the radar since Channel Orange, managing to avoid having to give details about any music in the works.
Naturally, twitter has officially gone into meltdown mode over the news and the reactions to Frank Ocean's announcement are spot on.
