New Music: Frank Ocean “Memrise”

New Music: Frank Ocean “Memrise”


In case you missed it after your tummys were stuffed with turkey, Frank Ocean released a new record titled Memrise late Thanksgiving night. This track will be featured on Frank’s sophomore album which according to the singer is just about finished.

The song tells the story of Frank wanting to visit his lover at home after having sensual thoughts about them. While it may be hard to understand the lyrics over the slow ballad Frank posted the lyrics on his Tumblr page for us.

I memorized the wayward expressions

Never look down 
Never let you see me down 
I memorized the way no directions
Can I come over now 
I’d like to stay a little while 
I memorized your body exposed 
I could fuck you all night long 
From a memory alone

I never forget a face 
Don’t go plastic on me 
Nothing’s set in stone 
You’re not dipped in gold
Dipped in gold
You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold
You are not on paper 
You are not a copy 
You’re so, you’re thick, so thick

If you were a fan of the first album Channel Orange then you are going to love Frank’s new album according to director Nabil Elderkin. Earlier this year Nabil told us that this album “blows the sophomore-album myth out of the water”.
