Frank Ocean Locks Down Release Date for Debut Album ‘Channel Orange’

The illusive singer Frank Ocean resurfaces with a new announcement of a future projected entitled ‘Channel Orange.’ The Odd Future crooner released an album trailer, directed by Nabil and starring a BMW station wagon, which featured him singing a new tune in the background.

After battling with his record label Def Jam, Ocean independently released ‘Nostalgia, Ultra’ which catapulted his success with singles “Novacane” and “Swim Good.” Now with label support, his debut album ‘Channel Orange’ will be available at music retailers on July 17, 2012.

Throughout the summer, Ocean will be touring Europe as the opening performer for Coldplay. The tour kicks off in July and will continue to August.
