Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange" has arrived! The early release of the album will be available exclusively from the iTunes store until its official July 17 launch and you can currently stream it from Frank's own tumblr page here. The Odd Future member who has worked with Beyonce, Kanye West and Jay-Z, drew attention last week for a much-discussed blog post revealing a past relationship with a man. His honesty drew industry support from figures including Russell Simmons, Tyler, the Creator, and Beyonce, who responsed with a post on her own site, writing, "Be fearless / be honest / be generous / be brave / be poetic / be open / be free / be yourself / be in love / be happy / be inspiration.
The anticipated album will be his official Def Jam Debut after the 2011 release of "Nostalgia, Ultra," a mixtape Ocean shared online himself after a period of label frustration. Frank also made his TV debut on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, where he was joined by the Roots for his performance of 'Bad Religion'.
