Frank Ocean - Blond FLAC album

Blond(e) is the second studio album by American singer Frank Ocean.

Blonde (alternatively titled blond) is the second studio album by American singer Frank Ocean. Blonde features an abstract and experimental sound in comparison to Ocean's previous releases, and includes guest vocals from André 3000, Beyoncé, Yung Lean, and Kim Burrell, among others.

Released August 20, 2016. The album was released on August 20, 2016, following a four-year hiatus after the release of channel ORANGE. The magazine, titled Boys Don’t Cry, is a companion piece to Blonde and features various types of content including poetry and interviews from Frank himself. The magazine also features an alternate track listing for Blonde. Fans have speculated that the use of blond on the album cover and blonde on the album listing is a reference to Frank’s bisexuality and the themes of duality between masculinity and femininity in his life; with blond being the masculine form, and blonde being the feminine. The word blonde itself holds two interpretations.

Frank Ocean's long-awaited new studio album is his most adventurous project to date. With all the elation over its arrival, the album's release also feels like a myth has been dispelled. Frank releasing Blond/Blonde is like discovering Bigfoot was just regular man with huge toes, that unicorns are nothing more than mutated horses, discovering Hogwarts is a school for special effects not witchcraft and wizardry - the red pill has been swallowed and the illusion is over.

Boys Don't Cry, the magazine distributed at pop-up locations the day this unlike-titled album was released, featured an essay in which Frank Ocean affably reflected upon his infatuation with cars. Allusions to parallels between vehicular travel and other aspects of life, such as making music, were drawn, his relief in completing the Channel Orange follow-up made apparent

Frank Ocean’s sophomore studio album, 'Blond,' is as avant-garde as it gets. When it comes to album releases in 2016, artists go the more unconventional route, aiming for the element of surprise, and Frank’s sophomore studio album, Blond, is as avant-garde as it gets. Originally set for release under the title Boys Don’t Cry, the mystery and anticipation surrounding the singer’s junior offering increased with every passing year until the idea of a Frank Ocean album became more of a running joke than an actual reality

At first, Frank Ocean was simply a great storyteller. Then he became the story-an avatar for all of our fluid modern ideals. He could be the dynamic human of the future, exploding age-old binaries with an eloquent note, melting racial divisions with a devastating turn of phrase or quick flit to falsetto. You represent the race, and you have responsibilities that go beyond your art. How dare you just be excellent? The Rock quote is from a 2012 profile of the reclusive D’Angelo, who felt compelled to release his first album in 14 years following the shooting of Michael Brown; the moment spurred him on. Faced with a hellish loop of police brutality, other musical leaders like Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé came forth with brilliant righteousness as well.

Frank Ocean shot by Wolfgang Tillmans. The tantalising live stream evolved into Endless, a 45 minute long album of offcuts, which serves as a prelude to Blond and included an astonishing list of contributors and that cover of the Isley Brothers/Aaliyah track At Your Best, You Are Love, re-recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra. But despite the wealth of music and the weight of the collaborators, Endless didn't quite meet people's expectations; the tracks didn't seem to matter/it was no Pink Matter.

Vivaral
Haha someone has a worn, scratched copy and is selling it here for £2,500.. what a wind up
Burisi
Honestly sounds just fine to me. No surface noise and overall sounds very clear. Spending $40 on this rather than hundreds on the official copy was well worth it.
Geny
Anyone know where this originated from?                                                      .
Hirah
3400 people have it. And the prices? Ooooooh Boy. You're just hilarious.
Scream_I LOVE YOU
Yeah, it's utterly absurd. I can't believe people are even willing to pay so much for something not really all that limited.
Ballazan
This was really well advertised at the time as a one off pressing.
Roru
Just got restocked on blonded.co word word word word word
Legend 33
Frank just reissued the Boys Don't Cry magazine, so hopefully this means we'll see a repress of Blonde or maybe even Endless in the future?
Thordigda
Think of how many people have bought this album second hand and for well above the retail price. I cant see that happening.
Valawye
HEY GUYS, IF YOU ARE WILLING TO SELL, HIT ME UP!
Ballalune
No one's going to pay $1,000+ for this. Especially considering it will likely be re-released. These scalpers are out of their mind.
Brariel
while I'd personally agree on the gripes about the price, if you're a frank fan then you'd know by now to not get your hopes up. it's been two and a half years since this release, and he seems to have moved on from it. but hey, you can hope I guess...
Olma
I recommend getting the Endless vinyl way more if you don't have any of the two, this will probably repress one day with official cover color, endless will probably not.
adventure time
Yeah, scalpers suck, but Endless is the good album anyway.
Ytli
$500!?!? Ahhhahaaaa! Nope. Cool album but pull your head out of your asses.
EROROHALO
More bootlegs than official releases. It's sad that one of the finest albums of my lifetime is handled in this way. I would probably buy multiple copies of this. At least he (hopefully) sees something from my 8 billion Spotify plays.
Rollers from Abdun
Reminder to not pay $625 for an XL Recordings pressing. This will go back down to 300-400 if you just dont buy it for like a month or two.
Whitestone
Quite literally just went down to $399.99. You see what I mean?
Modifyn
What makes you say so? Trying to buy a copy for myself and don't want it to get anymore expensive than it already is.
Skillet
The tracklisting is really messed up. The end of Side A is "Good Guy" then "Nights," and the start of Side B is "Solo (Reprise)" and then "Pretty Sweet."
Jark
Hi.Is this pressing good? I don't enjoy the idea of buying unofficial releases, but for this record the prices are blown up unproportionally. However, for this album the quality of the pressing is especially important. Does anyone know the quality of this? Kind regards
Kalrajas
Noisy, zero bass, mids and highs are fine, sound levels fluctuate between tracks. Obviously ripped from multiple sources.
Zamo
One of the best albums of the decade. That is all.
September
I have one that matches up these notes, except with purple smoke/green smoke coloring. They have actual stickers as well on the records that have the songs of each side on them, with no etching. Not sure if it deserves a separate listing though, as it almost feels like just an iteration on the other one.
catterpillar
How does it sound? Looks unofficial but you never know.
Lynnak
XL usually reissue every album they release. I'm sure this will be reissued at some point. Be patient and don't pay the scalpers silly money
Urtte
This was released by Frank independently and the distribution handled by XL. Pretty sure they won't have the rights to repress it.
Sharpbrew
Jesus take the wheel, i guess frank is trolling the vinyl community, especially for EU people.
Anarasida
Do you remember how many was the shipping? I live in France and I want to know.
Crazy
How? I'm from the EU and purchased both Endless and Blond when he released them on Cyber Monday/Black Friday. Shipping was pretty reasonable too.Just keep an eye out the BF or CM and don't miss this years release.
