Frank Ocean’s new album, “Boys Don’t Cry,” is finally coming out Friday


At long last, Frank Ocean is bringing new music into the world — and this Friday, at that.

The singer’s long-awaited second album is set for release Friday and will be called “Boys Don’t Cry.” It will be available exclusively through Apple Music for two weeks before popping up on other services, according to the New York Times.

In addition to the new album, a printed companion publication — also dubbed “Boys Don’t Cry” — will be available at Apple stores starting Friday.

While the elusive Ocean has been active somewhat in music — especially with Kanye West, appearing on “The Life of Pablo” and West’s earlier album with Jay Z, “Watch the Throne” — he has kept fans waiting impatiently for a follow-up to the 2012 release “Channel Orange.”
