Frank Ocean's new album is expected on Friday


It's been four long years since Frank Ocean dropped Channel Orange - but if the New York Times is correct, we'll only be waiting a few more days for new music.

The publication claims Boys Don't Cry will be released on August 5, exclusively on Apple Music, and will be accompanied by a magazine of the same name on sale at Apple stores - as well as a "major" video.

By now we know not to get our hopes up too much - after all, we've known the name of Frank's second album for three years and have periodically been told to expect its release.

But following a live-stream on his website that briefly played some music, and the Times' source, it's looking increasingly more likely that Boys Don't Cry is really on the way.

Until then though you'll just have to keep enjoying Nostalgia/Ultra and Channel Orange some more.
