Frank Ocean dishes on follow-up to 'Channel Orange,' says he has '10 or 11' tracks completed

By Gina DiFalco,

After much success with his first album, Channel Orange, Frank Ocean reveals that he has a good amount of work done for her sophomore album.

The Grammy winner told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe that he’s “like 10, 11 songs into this next thing” while in England for the Brit Awards.

He’s been working with producer Pharrell Wiliams, Tyler, the Creator and he will be working with Danger Mouse when he gets back to the U.S., Idolator reports.

He said of the new album, “It’s another cohesive thing bordering on a concept record again,” adding of the bonus cut of his first album “It’s this beach scene and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record … I’m going to take [my recording equipment] to Bora Bora and work for a few weeks.”

As far as a possible tour, “I do want to get out for a few months this year … I have some plans,” he said.

According to MTV News, Ocean said about the experience of the Grammys that it was “quite the rollercoaster ... I was pretty stoked.”

He noted if he were to win Record of the Year, he would’ve "screamed in my highest note.”
