Frank Ocean Reveals New Album ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and Release Date In Tumblr Post


R&B singer Frank Ocean posted images of himself deciding between what appears to be two album covers to his Tumblr account along with the hashtags #Issue1, #ALBUM3, #JULY2015 and #BOYSDONTCRY revealing the title and release window of his third full-length album yesterday reports Spin.

Ocean captioned the two images saying, "I got two versions. I got twooo (sic) versions…" indicating that he is in the final processes of picking an official cover for the album. Ocean has remained particularly mum about the details of his new album except for releasing a demo snippet of a new song called Memrise in November 2014.

Ocean explored homoromantic subject matter in the songs Pink Matter and Forrest Gump on his previous album Channel Orange, leading news outlets and music journalists to speculate on the singer’s sexual orientation. Ocean later confirmed in an open letter, which was originally intended for the liner notes of Channel Orange, published on his Tumblr page affirming that his first love was with a man. Few details exist concerning Ocean’s new album Boys Don’t Cry, but the title may indicate that the singer may continue to explore these themes further.

Adam Lambert debuted a snippet of his new single "Ghost Town" from his upcoming third album The Original High, due out later this year, on his Instagram today. Lambert revealed to Billboard that the house-style track will arrive on April 21 and that his new album will be his first with Warner Bros. Records. Lambert spoke about his album with Billboard in January stating that the album is a surprising new direction for him.

Said Lambert:

"I think people are going to be really surprised. The album feels like a new era for me - emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter 100 percent."

Producers Max Martin and Shellback are executive producers behind The Original High. Lambert's sophomore album Trespassing topped the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2012, but Lambert later split from RCA Records and toured the world with Queen.
