Frank Ocean is gearing up to release his highly-anticipated sophomore album later this year and today, Buzzfeed is reporting that he'll be doing so with a brand new team to support him. Ocean reportedly fired his longtime management and publicist for undisclosed reasons. All sides have declined comments about the report.
Christian and Kelly Clancy have managed Odd Future in the past—these days, they manage Odd Future, Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler, the Creator, Solange, and Loiter Squad. They managed Ocean since 2010 and according to Buzzfeed, a new manager has not been named.
Along with new management, Frank has moved on from his publicist, Life or Death PR (which represents Odd Future, too) and is now working with the Hollywood agency, ID PR. Ocean has been rather quiet since the release of his last album, Channel Orange, but has reportedly been hard at work on his new album. Hopefully he'll make an official statement on his Tumblr later today.
