“Dear April” by Frank Ocean


We shared news of these two new songs from Frank Ocean over the weekend, when they first debuted on vinyl. However, the elusive and long-awaited singer has returned to put the pair of recordings on the streaming services, so you can now add them to your appropriate rotation. We shared “Cayendo” earlier, and now we wanted to highlight the sister album, “Dear April”.

Likewise, “Dear April” is slow and focused on acoustics. Produced by Frank Ocean himself and Daniel Aged, in the almost 4-minute song, Ocean believes about a lover he knew and how things have changed. It’s an emotional record, with the creaking of the guitar adding to that feeling, as Ocean’s voice becomes more distorted as the song progresses.

The song was included on Ocean’s 7 “vinyl, which was originally available for pre-order last year – and finally, last week as we have seen, these vinyls started making their way to fans. So, it seems like it’s time for the rest of us to get a taste of the streaming service download for both recordings.

Are we all ready for a new Ocean-specific album now?

Quotable Lyrics

You can take two strangers
Drive them left and right
At a certain place and at a certain time
Like you took these strangers
And our two strange lives
And made us new
