Ocean’s last two singles “Dear April” and “Cayendo” were released in March 2020. In a recent episode of his Apple Music show Blonded Radio titled “blonded Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” Ocean also confirmed that he had been recording new music in Malibu while taking psychedelics.
“Forgive how, like, free associative this might feel. … I was working in Malibu this summer and I would go out, like, pretty late from the studio and there’s, like, a big population of coyotes in Malibu,” he said around the 13:11 mark in the episode. “And then when I would go outside I would see, like, all these bunnies running around and it reminded me of video games where you’re, like, a wizard or something. And you’re playing this role in this game and you’re running around and you have these little things to pick up and put in the pouch.”
According to Discussing Film, Ocean will also direct his first full-length feature for production companies A24 and 2AM this year, reportedly titled Philly.
