This description of the show and the new song's lyrics have meant that many fans believe it was written about Frank Ocean's brother Ryan Breaux, who sadly passed away at the age of 18 in a car accident.
Acclaimed R&B singer Frank Ocean has shared a new song that runs almost nine minutes long on his Apple Music radio show, Blonded Radio.
The programme's Christmas special featured Ocean in conversation with Wim "The Iceman" Hof, a Dutch motivational speaker and athlete.
"Me and @iceman_hof had a conversation some time ago when I was in the earlier stages of grief and I remember marbling afterwards at how his energy blasted through the phone," Ocean wrote on his Instagram Story.
"So much vim in this Wim. We spoke for a while about his work, the purpose of grief and how going into the cold water changed his life.
It reminded me of conversations in the studio with players I know. Freewheeling, psychedelic, emotionally charged, intelligent and generous. I enjoyed listening to him, so in this edit, I just let him speak interrupted. Me, @coryhenry and @dylanpatricewiggins played some sounds underneath to heighten the feeling."
This description of the show and the new song's lyrics have meant that many fans believe the tune was written Frank Ocean's brother Ryan Breaux, who sadly passed away at the age of 18 in a car accident.
The untitled, stream of consciousness-esque, piece is also the first bit of new music from the Channel Orange singer since his brother died in August 2020.
