Rumour Has It That Frank Ocean Is Currently Working on a Novel

We didn’t see that coming.

While it is speculated that his highly-anticipated new album may be dropping this month, it seems that Frank Ocean has also been secretly working on another project. As one of the celebrities featured in Calvin Klein‘s latest campaign, the New Orleans native musician is rumoured to be writing his own novel. In fact, it was a reddit user who spotted this piece of information from the JavaScript code of Calvin Klein’s website, as the hidden text reads:

Frank Ocean is one of the most artistic and enigmatic musicians working today. Though it has been more than four years since he released his debut studio album, Channel Orange, interest in Ocean hasn’t waned. Instead, it’s increased.

He is known for being a perfectionist, and a pursuant of creativity in all forms. He resists pressure and follows his own vision. He has published a magazine and worked on a novel while continuing to perfect his highly anticipated second album.

Ocean shuns interviews and social media, and prefers instead to speak through his work. He has said that when it comes to understanding music, the most important thing is to just press play.

Ocean is a powerful storyteller, using his own openness and honesty to create an emotionally intimate world in each of his songs. With his craft, his aim is not money, power, or fame, but to grow, progress, evolve and eventually be the absolute best.

So while he continues to work on that, we’ll continue to wait, as long as it takes, because when Frank Ocean does something, he does it right. The wait will be worth it.

Ocean’s interest in print media has previously been suggested by his announcement to release a magazine, titled Boys Don’t Cry , along with his forthcoming album. Stay tuned for more updates on Ocean’s new creative offerings.
