Eternally smooth crooner Frank Ocean is expected to release his debut LP, Channel Orange, a full week earlier than previously announced. According to fans at a taping of tonight’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, on which Ocean is set to perform, Fallon hinted at a “big announcement,” and Ocean’s manager, Kelly Clancey, later tweeted “i wouldn’t miss frank ocean on fallon tonight…trust me… ?#channelorange?.”
The album, released on Def Jam, should be hitting iTunes right around 12:30am EST to coincide with the show’s airtime. [Rap-Up]
