Odd Future R&B crooner Frank Ocean will finally get the release he deserves. Ocean is following suit after Odd Future front man Tyler, The Creator’s debut, Goblin, sold 50k in its first week.
Def Jam held off on releasing his debut “Nostalgia, Ultra,” to Ocean’s despise. OFWGKTA’s resident crooner took matters into his own hands, offering the album as a free download on his tumblr website. The feedback from the project became such a sensation that his label took notice and has decided to release it in stores.
Def Jam will move froward with a July 26 release for the project. One of the tracks, the Tricky Stewart-produced “Novacane,” will be released digitally to iTunes ahead of the album on May 31.
