The spooky R&B producer and singer Frank Ocean first came to prominence as part of the hip-hop troublemakers Odd Future but had already ghost-written for John Legend and Justin Bieber.

His debut mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra garnered his mesmerising soul so much critical acclaim he came to the attention of Kanye West, Beyonce and Jay-Z, leading to a spot on Watch The Throne tracks ‘No Church In The Wild’ and ‘Made In America’.

And now he’s announced his debut album, which will be titled Channel Orange, and will feature OFWGKTA prodigal son Earl Sweatshirt, guitar maestro John Mayer, and Outkast legend Andre 3000.

The 17-track album will be out through Def Jam on July 17. Check out the first sounds with ‘Pyramids’ in the teaser trailer below and the Nostalgia, Ultra single ‘Novacane’ below.
