Frank Ocean has always managed to snag headlines during his interviews, and this time is no different. In an interview overseas, he spoke on the possibility of Channel Orange being his last album and cited his reasoning. Knowing how well received the album was, it'll be tough not to come back with another body of work, so, in all hopes, this could just be a phase he's in. Read the quote below.
“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!”
“It could be [my final album]. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing ’cause that’s just … that’s just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that.”
