After staying pretty lowkey for most of the year, Frank Ocean returned this morning with some new music titled "Memrise." Though it's only a little under two minutes in length, the song gives fans a long-awaited taste of what Frank's new album may sound like. The lo-fi, slow burning song sounds almost incomplete but if this is a teaser of what's to come, we're looking forward to it. 

Back in April, Ocean announced he would be skipping Coachella this year to finish some new music but there's no word yet on when and if a project is coming soon. For now, listen to "Memrise" which he revealed on his personal Tumblr page along with lyrics.


I memorized the wayward expressions

Never look down

Never let you see me down

I memorized the way no directions

Can I come over now

I’d like to stay a little while

I memorized your body exposed

I could fuck you all night long

From a memory alone

I never forget a face

Don’t go plastic on me

Nothing’s set in stone

You’re not dipped in gold

Dipped in gold

You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold

You are not on paper

You are not a copy

You’re so, you’re thick, so thick
