Frank Ocean has managed to stay out of the public eye despite coming up as a member of Odd Future and releasing one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the 2010s. So any bit of news about the singer is legit NEWS, and here’s the news today: He co-wrote “My Willing Heart” on James Blake‘s surprise album The Colour In Anything, which dropped overnight.

The spare song centers on a piano and some drowsy strings, with Blake flexing his falsetto — and if you squint hard enough you can see how it’s the work of the Channel Orange mastermind.

Hear his co-write below.

Ocean’s sophomore album will be out when it’s out.
