Report: Frank Ocean’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ Due On Friday, Exclusively Via Apple Music


We’ll Believe It When We See It Dep’t: According to the New York Times, Frank Ocean’s album Boys Don’t Cry will be out on Friday. According to the Times, who cited “a person with knowledge of the release plans”, Ocean has struck a deal with Apple Music, who will have a two-week exclusive on the album. This is excellent news if true, given that Boys Don’t Cry seems to have been in the works forever, but like we said, we’ll believe it when we see it. (Or, as the Grey Lady noted archly, “Given the number of delays the album has already had, it seems possible that Mr. Ocean could decide to put off the release beyond Friday.” Indeed he could.)
