Frank Ocean - "Pyramids"

Today was a big day for Frank Ocean. Not only did he announce that his new LP Channel Orange will drop July 17th via this mysterious trailer, but hours later he also leaked the album's first single. Clocking it just under 10 minutes, "Pyramids" is a futuristic, multi-part effort that even features a guitar solo from the song's co-writer John Mayer. The song is a perfect showcase of Frank Ocean's ability to take a modern R&B song, beef it up with several experimental methods, and kick out a unique and undoubted banger. Download the song below via his SoundCloud page. Very excited to see what Channel Orange has in store for us.
