Neo-RnB (I still prefer PBR+B, but I digress) crooner Frank Ocean played a show in Munich last night and the Grammy winner performed a few new songs, check out fan-shot footage of three of the performances below.
This track is the most complete recording and is an introspective slow jam featuring Ocean contemplating "two kids and swimming pool" with someone. However, as is usually the case with Ocean, things get complicated quickly and he sings that he is just "living in an idea from another man's mind". The sparsely arranged song ends with the drums finally kicking in and Ocean's breathtaking vocal repeating "I'd do anything for you". Baby makin music y'all.
The second tune is a clip that clocks in at just under 3 minutes and is an introspective mid-tempo jam about lost loves trying to figure out their tumultuous relationship and ::spoiler alert:: features some very impressive vocal work from Ocean.
The final clip is only about a minute long and features the backing band far more than the other two tracks, this seems to be just a snippet Ocean played at the start of the show.
In February of this year, Ocean told BBC1 Radio's Zane Lowe that he was already "10 to 11" songs into his new record, which will be the follow up to Ocean's fantastic breakthrough Channel Orange. I certainly didn't need anything to whet my appetite for the album, but this definitely does the trick, as does the fact that his rumored collaborators include Depeche Mode, Pharrell and King Krule.
