Frank Ocean – ‘Sweet Life’ | New Music

The media eye may have been focused on wider topics these past few days, but Frank Ocean averts the attention to the subject that really maters: the music. With little over a week ’til the release of his highly-anticipated Def Jam debut, channel ORANGE, the R&B star-in-the-making delivers the second leak with “Sweet Life”, co-written by Pharrell. It may be a new soundbed for Frank from the techno-tinged energy of the previous release, “Pyramids“, but ain’t a damn thing changed when it comes to the vocal element, as he croons over the jazzy backdrop like a painter with a canvas.

Shaping up to be one of the biggest records of the year (and we’ve still to hear the Andre 3000, Earl Sweatshirt or John Mayer-helped cuts), channel ORANGE goes live on July 17th.
