Ben Sisario and Joe Coscarelli, New York Times:
The long wait for a new Frank Ocean album may nearly be over.
Mr. Ocean, the innovative and enigmatic R&B singer, is set to release his next album, “Boys Don’t Cry,” on Friday through an exclusive deal with Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the release plans. The release is also expected to include a major video and a printed publication called Boys Don’t Cry that will be distributed at Apple stores.
As far as exclusives go, getting the next Frank Ocean album is about as good as it gets. Few records are as anticipated as “Boys Don’t Cry”.
