Trails and Ways, who released their fantastic Trilingual EP earlier in the year have treated us with something unexpected. They’ve released a free download of a very refreshing cover of Frank Ocean’s “Lost.”
They sprinkle their airy sound to it, offering it a new perspective that works wonder. Sure they stay true to the original, but they also offer something new, giving it their own unique spin that is a pleasure to listen to.
“Sunday” is the latest track to come out from Earl Sweatshirt’s new album Doris. It’s a special one because it features Frank Ocean rapping a verse, marking their first collaboration together since Frank’s “Super Rich Kids.” Ocean makes reference to his incident with Chris Brown.
It’s not the best quality but it’s a stream nevertheless. Enjoy “Sunday” below. Doris comes out August 20.
On Frank Ocean‘s channel ORANGE, “Pink Matter” features none other than Andre 3000 from Outkast. Now there’s an extra remix that features his Outkast tag team partner Big Boi. It’s the first time that they have officially appeared on a track together in many years.
Frank Ocean wrote a song for Django Unchained, but unfortunately, it didn’t end up making the film. No worries, Mr. Ocean shared the song on his tumblr. It’s believed to be titled “Wiseman.” I saw Django already (early screening came near me), and although the song is good, I don’t think it would have fit in the film at any point.
Frank Ocean dives into both r&b and rap methods on new song “Blue Whale”, which he posted on his tumblr late last night. I can only imagine the amount of music that he has just waiting to be shared from his harddrive.
Harriet are hard at work prepping their debut album, which should come out next year. In the meantime they are releasing cover sessions, where they will cover songs (new & old) that they love, putting them together and splitting them apart.
Frank Ocean just played SNL with John Mayer at his side, and he’s not done yet. He just released an official video for “Pyramids” that is a trip and a half. It also features an epic appearance from Mr. Mayer again.

Frank Ocean made his SNL debut, and what a debut it was. John Mayer joined him on guitar as he performed “Thinking About You” & “Pyramids”. It was nothing short of stunning. No doubt this is only the first of many SNL appearances for Mr. Ocean.
