As a little Friday night surprise (we know how much he likes to keep us on our toes) Frank Ocean gave us a snippet of a new track on his website. Hours later, Frank played the track in full on the third episode of his ‘Blonded’ Beats1 radio show. This seems to be Frank’s preferred choice for dropping new tunes, as he revealed ‘Chanel’ to us on the last episode.
The new track is titled ‘Bikes’ and features killer verses from Jay Z and long term friend / ex Odd Future compadre Tyler The Creator. It brings acoustic guitars and piano riffs to the table, reaching climax towards the end as Frank lets loose over the instrumental. The track also brought Tyler out of a relative Twitter silence, as he shared his verse to the track:

Having only recently receiving Blonde and Endless, from Frank, we’re not expecting any comprehensive project dropping any time soon, but he is the king of surprises so we also wouldn’t put it past him.
