Frank Ocean is already almost a dozen songs deep into his next album, but here we have an older tune that’s new to most of our ears. “Eyes Like Sky” was probably meant for Ocean’s debut, channel ORANGE, and didn’t make the cut, but not for a lack of quality.
In the tune, Ocean croons about faith over sturdy drums and smooth guitar licks. “He’s watching…with eyes like sky, eyes like I’ve never seen,” goes this spiritual number’s refrain.
It’s been a busy 2013 for the “Novacane” singer already. In late January, the Odd Future singer’s debut album was certified Gold. He also got into a now infamous brawl with Chris Brown outside of a Hollywood Studio.
Nevertheless, Ocean still managed to perform at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards (it wasn’t his best, though) where he picked up a pair of Grammys, including Best Urban Contemporary album.
