Frank Ocean Confirms Long-Awaited New Album 'Boys Don't Cry' Will Be Released This Month
Looks like Frank Ocean's third album, 'Boys Don't Cry, is coming sometime in July
A new album for Frank Ocean is on the way.
The 28-year-old R&B singer confirmed the news on his website on Saturday, publishing a photo that shows how many times his third album – rumored to be titled “Boys Don’t Cry” – has been pushed back since it’s July 2015 release date.
Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, also published the same image to his Instagram. “BOYS DON’T CRY” he captioned the shot, with the hashtag “July2016.”
Ocean also republished a photo post from that month, with copies of an accompanying Boys Don’t Cry magazine. “I got two versions. I got twooooo versions,” Ocean wrote with the picture. “#ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDON’TCRY” he added.
The URL for the image is titled “late” – likely another reference to the delayed album.
The long-awaited album is a follow up to Ocean’s 2012 record Channel Orange, which earned the singer two Grammy awards including Best Urban Contemporary Album.

He’s been working super hard. I feel like he’s working harder than he’s ever worked in his life,” he said. “I’m excited for everyone to hear it. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised, for sure.”
