Some fans were left confused by the closing track during the video stream (and opening track on the album), an electronic cut called "Device Control" credited to W. Tillmans. As FACT points out, Wolfgang Tillmans is a German photographer who is dipping into the music sphere with a forthcoming EP also titled Device Control that will be out Sept. 16.
"Enormously proud and happy that Frank Ocean did include my (yet unreleased) track 'Device Control' as intro and as a full length ending of his Endless album!" Tillmans wrote on Instagram before laying out how the whole collaboration came together. "We were in touch about the intro, but I wouldn’t believe it until it happened. Three weeks ago I showed him a few songs, which I had written and produced for myself, and he replied 'Device Control is brilliant. Love. Can I sample it for the intro of my album?'"
Apparently, Tillmans was surprised with the rest of the world when Endless dropped and even more shocked to see that his entire song had made the final version. "I agreed and to my excited surprise this morning he didn't just sample it. He released my complete original track as the end of this amazing album." That is one huge co-sign. You can stream Frank's visual album Endless right here. Be on the lookout for more Frank Ocean which may be coming on Apple Music sometime over weekend, although it reportedly will not be titled Boys Don't Cry.
