New Music: Frank Ocean - memrise

New Music: Frank Ocean - memrise

It’s just Em-Oceans, taking Frank over.

If you’ve been thinkin’ bout Frank Ocean lately, and wondering what the Grammy Award winner up to since his widely loved and influential 2012 Channel Orange, the answer comes in new track memrise which Ocean quietly shared on his tumblr.

“Can I come over now...I could fuck you all night long from a memory alone" sings Ocean (ooof) voice full of pleasure and pain, in this lo-fi number lyrically detailing an affair with a past lover. Ocean harmonizes with multiples layers of his own voice in an atmospheric opening, before some speak-singing and final power balladry. How great is it how he’s spelt it ‘memrise’ instead of ‘memories’ so it looks like the word sunrise? Sunrise being presumably the time he fucked his ex-lover until.

Ocean's reportedly been in the studio working with producer Hit-Boy (Beyoncé's XO, Jay-Z's Niggaz in Paris). Rolling Stone anticipated in their Fall Music Preview that Ocean's follow up to Channel Orange would arrive this US winter (so our summer - i.e. now) but seeing as though there's only a month left in the year now, it's looking like maybe early to mid 2015 would be a more accurate projection:

Can Frank come over now?
