Frank Ocean has already released one new album this week and, according to reports, is set to drop another too.

The R&B singer released new visual album ‘Endless’ via Apple Music today, but is reportedly still due to release another LP, the one formerly known as ‘Boys Don’t Cry‘.

Fans have been awaiting that record for some time. It was initially due to be released in July 2015 and then July of this year. The last due date to be touted was August 5, but again the record failed to materialise.

According to Rolling Stone, a separate album to ‘Endless’ will follow “this weekend” but will no longer be called ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.

An Apple Music representative also reportedly told Pitchfork to “keep an eye out this weekend for more from Frank.”

Meanwhile, ‘Endless’ features 18 tracks that were premiered via Ocean’s livesteam, which saw him complete the building of a staircase. Among the tracklist is a Isley Brothers cover.

Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood is credited as a string orchestrator on ‘At Your Best (You Are Love)’ while James Blake is credited for the synth on ‘At Your Best’. Arca, Sampha, Sebastian and Alex G are also credited on the album. Kanye West producer Mike D mastered the release.
