Happy Thanksgiving, Oceanographers. (That is what Frank Ocean fans are called, right?) Early Friday morning, Ocean presumably woke up from his turkey-and-stuffing mini-coma to post “Memrise,” his first publicly released new solo track of 2014, to his Tumblr, along with the song’s lyrics.
The woozy, sung-spoke two-minute track will hardly serve to satiate fans desperate for another “Novacane” or “Thinkin Bout You” — “Memrise” is far closer in nature to one of the Channel Orange interlude cuts than anything with lead single potential — but for fans just looking for some kind of proof-of-life transmission from the mostly radio-silent singer in 2014, it’ll do for now.
Listen below, and hope that this sets a precedent of Frank releasing new music after every American holiday. We may have a couple more of those coming up soon-ish.
