Ever since the release of his debut album Channel OrangeFrank Ocean has been relatively quiet. Aside from dropping his former manager Christian Clancy and signing to Three Six Zero Management, the Odd Future-affiliated crooner has been under the radar. Ocean ceased his radio silence today by releasing his new song, “Memrise,” on Tumblr.


The distorted love song hints at Ocean’s music going in a more ethereal direction in the future, which is a nice sound for him. It’s anyone’s guess if this is an indication of his highly-anticipated second album or if it’s just a teaser. Only time will tell.

Ocean also released the lyrics for the song. Check them out below:

I memorized the wayward expressions

Never look down 
Never let you see me down 
I memorized the way no directions
Can I come over now 
I’d like to stay a little while 
I memorized your body exposed 
I could fuck you all night long 
From a memory alone 

I never forget a face 
Don’t go plastic on me 
Nothing’s set in stone 
You’re not dipped in gold
Dipped in gold
You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold
You are not on paper 
You are not a copy 
You’re so, you’re thick, so thick
