Someone Compiled All The Instrumentals From Frank Ocean’s Stream

Frank Ocean‘s been “live” streaming some sort of huge woodworking project all week ahead of the August 5 (that’s tomorrow!) release of his long-awaited second album Boys Don’t Cry. And as the singer toiled away on a maybe-staircase, at various points it was accompanied by instrumentals — 21 of them, to be exact.

It’s unclear whether these arrangements will appear in some form on the new album, or if they’re even the work of Ocean. Regardless, Frank completists will want to hear them, and lucky for them a kind soul has compiled them all into a Soundcloud playlist. (My favorite at the moment happens to be No. 16.)

We’re less than 12 hours away from hearing Boys Don’t Cry, so if you need to get into the right balanced mental state before it arrives, listen to the workshop stream soundtrack below.
