Frank Ocean Gives Update on His Follow-up to "Channel Orange"

Island Def JamJust a couple weeks ago, Frank Ocean was picking up a Grammy for his Channel Orange album, and already he's on to the "next thing."  He tells BBC Radio 1 that he's "10, 11 songs" deep into the follow-up to his mainstream debut, which was named Best Urban Contemporary Album at the Grammy Awards show earlier this month.

Frank has plans to continue working on his upcoming LP during a trip to the island of Bora Bora.  If you're wondering what the project will sound like, Frank tells BBC 1 that he'll take a thread from the beach-y sound of "Golden Girl," a hidden track from Channel Orange.  Overall, the new album is "another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again," Frank says.

There's a chance that the project will feature production from Pharrell Williams, who Frank confirms he was with in the recording studio earlier this week.  During their time together, Frank says that Pharrell encouraged him to do a two-year tour to promote Channel Orange.  But Frank tells BBC 1, "I can't tour for two years straight because I have to record."

He says that he does, however, plan to do some live shows this summer.
