Hear Frank Ocean’s “White,” Off ‘Odd Future Tape Vol. 2’

    The track listing for the upcoming Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 showed that Frank Ocean would appear on three cuts. Now, just days before its March 20 release, we get to hear “White,” his only solo outing off the project. Its backdrop is incredibly sparse for the most part, but, lucky for us, Ocean’s voice–aside from being tangibly heartfelt–is more than capable of standing on its own.

    In a brief two minutes, he touches on life, space and memory, singing that he forgets his first love like you forget a daydream. “We’ll all fade to grey soon,” Ocean sings before a cathartic wash of horns and cymbal crashes, “on the TV station.” Give it a listen below. [MI]
