Stream Ocean's new album in its entirety
Frank Ocean's gathered a fair few column inches over the past couple of weeks, both around his opening up about his sexuality, and his much-anticipated new album Channel Orange. The follow-up to last year's great Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape, it marks his debut for Def Jam. It was originally set to be released next week - July 16th - but this morning he's released the album a week early through iTunes, and has uploaded a stream of the entire thing to his Tumblr.
