For Frank Ocean fans, it’s been an excruciating few weeks in anticipation for his next album ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ with broken promises of release dates and drawn-out teasers.

Originally slated for an August 5 release, Frank Ocean set up what seemed to be a live stream on the ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ website which showed Ocean slowly building and constructing something made out of wood. Though the “stream” (which was eventually revealed as a pre-recorded video loop) ultimately didn’t reveal the album, it did fulfill the promise of a “major visual component” to be released alongside the album.

Today, the entirety of the “visual component” was revealed as ‘Endless’, a 45-minute visual album. ‘Endless’ is made up of 18-tracks and notably includes a cover of Aaliyah’s ‘At Your Best (You Are Love)’ with James Blake and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.

Credits for ‘Endless’ reveal a bounty of hidden gems about Ocean’s vision, including recording locations (Abbey Road and Capitol Studios, amongst others) and appearances from Sampha, Arca and more.

‘Endless’ will not replace his third LP release, though it’s been reported that the album may no longer be titled ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, as Ocean had previously announced.
