Frank Ocean - 'Sweet Life' [Listen]
Odd Future's R&B totem Frank Ocean has shared track 'Sweet Life' via his Tumblr hosting production by N.E.R.D's Pharrell Williams. This beautiful slice of Ocean’s anticipated album Channel Orange does no less than strengthen the urge for the album, due for release on the 17th July. There's no escaping the tender grasp of the blissfully soulful bassline, the smoothly understated jazz keys, the inexplicably alluring lyrics and elegant beat. All of which lull you downriver as the evocations of Ocean's words glide above you – mango, peaches and lime, a sweet life…why see the world when you got the beach?
The eagerly anticipated followup to last year's Channel ORANGE is reportedly around 10 to 11 songs in and he's been in the studio with Pharrell Williams. [read more]
