Frank Ocean, the next great novelist? In an interview with The Guardian, the Channel Orange singer discussed his process for writing lyrics. "The storytelling part of it is the most interesting part of the whole process for me," he told the interviewer, then explained further:
"I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem. I guess everything in life is a math problem, but it can be more about an empirical route to getting the symmetry that you want, and this vibe, sonically. But storytelling's a different thing. Like I said, it's the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don't know!"
Considering "Pyramids" is practically a novel within a song, we think Mr. Ocean could produce a fine specimen of fiction. Literary agents, pick up your phones! Publishing houses, get ready for the bidding war! [Hypetrak]
