The Guardian named Frank Ocean’s album Channel ORANGE their “Album of the Year” so to follow up they sat down for an interview with Frank and he had some interesting things to say.
“So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know!”
Frank followed up that statement by explaining his state of mind and how he wants to move forward creatively.
So Channel Orange could be your last album? This could be it?
It could be. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that’s just … that’s just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that.
With Frank recieving all the praise for releasing one of the years questions, you might be wondering what he enjoyed this year:
Finally, tell me which albums you’ve enjoyed this year.
Hmm. Let me see what I have. I thought Norah Jones made a really good record. I thought Kendrick Lamar made a cool record. I thought John Mayer made a really good record. Speaking of new records, you know who needs to make a new album? I think Fleetwood Mac needs to make a new album. I think so. I think they do.
