Frank Ocean is up to something, although it’s not exactly clear what it is just yet. The singer uploaded a short clip of a new song to his Tumblr today, and already a number of websites are guessing that this could herald the release of his debut album. The video mostly focuses on a car before the following text appears on-screen: “Channel Orange 7.17.12.” Could that be the name and release date of Ocean’s new record? He’s not saying, so expect plenty of speculation until official word arrives.
Update: We’ve just received confirmation from Def Jam. Frank Ocean’s upcoming album is entitled channel ORANGE and will be released on July 17.
