To coincide with the release of his new album, Blonde, Frank Ocean's highly anticipated Boys Don't Cry zine launched this weekend. There's a lot of interesting material in there, including a pretty incredible rap about McDonald's from Kanye West among other things. Perhaps one of the coolest parts of the zine, however, comes from Frank himself in the form of a list of his favorite songs.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the list is an eclectic mix of artists from carious genres. The list features Jimi Hendrix, James Blake, Prince, Simon & Garfunkel, GoldLink, Kraftwerk, Death Grips, and Aphex Twin. It's a very interesting and impressive list, and thankfully someone has put together a convenient Spotify playlist of the songs.

Listen to a Spotify playlist of the songs below, and check out the full list of the songs below that via Fact.
