Frank Ocean is dropping all kinds of surprises this week. Shortly after releasing his Endless visual album as well as the music video for “Nikes,” the famously reclusive singer has announced the launch of several Boys Don’t Cry pop-up shops.

According to his blog, the special event will go down in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and London today. There are few details on what visitors can expect, but judging by the handful of photos circulating around social media, it appears his long-awaited zine will be available at the locations reportedly for free.

But that's not all. Each of the zines reportedly come with a copy of Ocean's highly anticipated studio album Boys Don't Cry. If this is true, then it shouldn't be much longer until the rest of the world gets to hear what the singer has been working on for the last several years.


The free gift also features a list of the album's contributors, which includes names like Kanye West, 88 Keys, Tyler, the Creator, Kendrick Lamar, David Bowie, and Beyoncé.

Check out where each of the shops are located in the cities. And be sure to stay tuned as more information rolls in.
