Frank Ocean sent his fans into overdrive last night (27.11.17) after teasing them with some potential album news
Frank Ocean has teased that he has a new album to release.
The 'Nikes' hitmaker celebrated his 30th birthday on October 28 and has hinted that new music he record before he reached the milestone age could surface in the future.
In a note on his Tumblr page posted on Monday night (27.11.17), he wrote: "I made the album before 30. I just aint put that bitch out!"
He added: "quotes from an interview I haven't given."
The 'Swim Good' hitmaker has been hinting that he is working on new music for some time, though he previously said that he may never release another record.
Frank is no longer signed to a label, after splitting from Def Jam Recordings, and he said last year that he doesn't feel the need to release a full collection of songs and that he might stick to a "half-a-song format".
At the time, he said: "Because I am not in a record deal, I don't have to operate in an album format. I can operate in half-a-song format."
The 'Super Rich Kids' star also said it was important for him to self-release 'Blonde', because he didn't have to worry about how it did in the charts like his previous album, 2012's 'Channel Orange'.
He said: "With this record ['Blonde'] in particular, I wanted to feel like I won before the record came out, and I did, and so it took a lot pressure off of me about how the record even would perform after the fact. Once the goal is met, everything else is lagniappe. It's not essential for me to have a big debut week, it's not essential for me to have big radio records."
Meanwhile, the 'Novacane' singer teased that he could be moving away from music to try something new that he is a "novice" at.
He said previously: "I believe that I am one of the best in the world at what I do, and that's all I ever wanted to be.
"It's more interesting for me to figure out how to be superior in areas where I'm naive, where I am a novice."
