Thanks to Mr. Ocean, I now know how to build a staircase.
But no, seriously. The “Endless” visual album made me even more anxious for the release of Boys Don’t Cry. At 45-minutes in length, Endless is basically a live stream of the album that was later made available via Apple Music.
It kicks off with “At Your Best” by the Isley Brothers, which was also covered by Aaliyah. Ocean previously released the track as “You Are Luhh” to celebrate what would have been Aaliyah’s 36th birthday in January 2015. Needless to say, it still sounds flawless.
Aside from that, the project also features guest appearances by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, James Blake, Jazmine Sullivan and Sampha.
It was previously reported that Boys Don’t Cry would be released on Aug. 5 as an Apple Music exclusive. Let’s hope this means it will actually drop soon. Check it out for yourself here.
