Frank Ocean has released two brand new songs, but you probably won’t be able to hear them properly anytime soon.

Back in October, Frank Ocean previewed a pair of new songs during his first-ever PrEP+ club night in New York City. “Dear April” and “Cayendo” received remixes from Justice and Sango respectively, and listings for 7″ vinyl editions of the new music were subsequently made available to pre-order on Frank’s website. Now, months later, those physical copies have finally shipped to fans.

It’s currently unclear whether “Dear April” and “Cayendo” will be released on streaming services and digital storefronts. Knowing Frank, these tracks will be shrouded in mystery for quite some time.

Fans who preordered Frank Ocean’s vinyl ‘Little Demon’ received an email saying that the musician will be sending them an unreleased song, and these songs have now revealed themselves to be ‘Dear April’ and ‘Cayendo’.

Frank Ocean is known for being a bit of a recluse. He is missing from social media, many of his songs aren’t on his YouTube, and his most recent release of ‘Little Demon’ with Skepta has remained unreleased to streaming services.

While the Louisianan singer-songwriter was previously more in the spotlight when he debuted music worldwide through Odd Future, his latest release ‘Little Demon’ was only available on vinyl for repetitive listening.

While patiently waiting for their vinyl to ship so they can replay his latest collaborative track, fans received an email noting that their vinyl won’t be sent, but that they will be receiving new Frank Ocean songs instead.

These new tracks follow ‘In My Room’, a downtempo track with slick production. The tune saw Frank discussing expensive spending over beats by US DJ Sángo, while an intimate black-and-white photo adorns the single cover art.

While these new singles are the first we’ve seen from Frank Ocean in many weeks, we’re still expecting another few singles to formally drop soon, with the artist leading up to what we can only expect to be his follow-up to the incredible Blonde.
