Many have been (impatiently) waiting for Frank Ocean to follow up 2012’s Channel Orange with a new record, and now that time has finally come! The singer revealed last night (April 6) on Tumblr that he plans to drop an album this summer, with the caption: “I got two versions. I got twooo versions…”

The accompanying images show Ocean sitting on a stool as he holds two magazine stacks titled Boys Don’t Cry. Many speculated that is the album title, but a rep for Ocean confirmed to Billboard that both a new publication and a new album are coming in July from the singer. As of now, there is no title for either project just yet.

The most recent music we’ve received from Ocean was November’s “Memrise” and his cover of Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love)” back in January. View his Tumblr announcement and revisit Channel Orange’s “Pyramids” video below!
