ans hoping to hear Ocean’s first new music since April 2020 were gifted with a lengthy piano piece featuring the artist rapping and ad-libbing. As Frank wrote on his Instagram Stories, the majority of the track was recorded in a single take during the summer of 2020.

Along with his music, Ocean’s Blonded Radio episode also included audio extracted from his discussion with Dutch extreme athlete and motivational speaker Wim “The Iceman” Hof, conducted following the death of Ocean’s younger brother Ryan Breaux in August 2020.

According to Ocean, “Me and @iceman_hof had a conversation some time ago when I was in the earlier stages of grief and I remember marbling afterwards at how his energy blasted through the phone.” “So much vim in this Wim. We spoke for a while about his work, the purpose of grief and how going into the cold water changed his life.” “It reminded me of conversations in the studio with players I know. Freewheeling, psychedelic, emotionally charged, intelligent and generous. I enjoyed listening to him, so in this edit I just let him speak interrupted.”

With the singer concentrating on his luxury brand Homer in 2021, Frank Ocean last released his singles “Dear April” and “Cayendo” in April 2020,
