*After a lengthy hiatus, Frank Ocean is back with new music in time for the holidays.
A stripped down two-minute track, reportedly titled “Memrise,” was posted on his official tumblr early Friday (Nov. 28) along with its written-out lyrics.
The words have singer-songwriter telling a lover how he imagines them, after asking to come over.
“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 f— 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 so…so thick, so thick”
Ocean has been in the studio working on his follow-up to his 2012 debut studio album, “Channel Orange,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
No word on whether “Memrise” wil be featured on his upcoming sophomore album.
