Like many of the exclusive albums to come thus far, Apple is involved in the release.

Frank Ocean like Travis Scott will be releasing a new album on Friday, August 5, via Apple Music.

The confirmation of Ocean's album Boys Don't Cry came from a recent New York Times article which explained much of the confusion that was surrounding the release.


Ocean, the innovative and enigmatic R&B singer, is set to release his next album, 'Boys Don't Cry,' on Friday through an exclusive deal with Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the release plans," reported The New York Times.

"The release is also expected to include a major video and a printed publication called 'Boys Don't Cry' that will be distributed at Apple stores."

Channel ORANGE, the debut album from Ocean, was one of best debuts from an R&B artist. Critics all over raved about the albums content and the actual way it was assembled.

Now, Ocean is looking to top what some are calling his best work with a new piece that fans have been starving for.

If you don't have Apple Music, you will have to wait two weeks until the album is available on all platforms.
