Back in January, Frank Ocean also teased that “if you liked 2017, you’ll love 2018”, hinting at more music to come this year.
Well, while it may not be a “new” tune in the strictest sense, Frank has just delivered a new version of the 1961 classic ‘Moon River’ on to YouTube. His reinterpretation of the tune – performed by Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ – is sparse, made up of not too much more than Frank’s own vocals, reverb and echo effects on the harmonies and a simple guitar line, making it hauntingly beautiful.
Eagle-eyed viewers may notice that the YouTube video is stamped with the date “2/14”. So although it’s been posted on 15th February, maybe this is a Valentine’s gift from Frank. Quite honestly, you couldn’t ask for too much more.
Recently, Frank chatted to ‘Call Me By Your Name’ star Timothée Chalamet for V Man, talking about the best places to get food, method acting, high school rapping and more.
