Frank Ocean set out on his “You’re Not Dead” tour last night in Munich, Germany. Like any of the Odd Future elder statesmen‘s concerts, the show had an intimate feel — making it the perfect locale to debut new material.
In a February interview, Ocean said “I’m like 10, 11 songs into this next thing.” We assume the three tracks he premiered are first listens from his forthcoming body of work.
The audio quality of the footage is pretty dismal, but from what we can tell, the “Thinkin Bout You” crooner has stuck to his familiar sound.
With exception to guest spots on Tyler, The Creator’s Wolf and Kanye West’s Yeezus, Ocean hasn’t released any fresh tunes since his critically acclaimed 2012 album, channel ORANGE, until now.
The Grammy winner also briefly described what fans can expect in the aforementioned interview. “I don’t know what to tell you, other than that it’s another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again. At the end of channel, ORANGE there’s ‘Golden Girl,’ and it’s this beach scene. And I kind of want it to extend that feel into the next record all together, kind of make it that theme.”
