In the two years since Frank Ocean debuted channel orange in the summer of 2012, the Odd Future singer has been rather mum on new solo material. Famous friends like Jay, Kanye & Beyonce can get choruses and backing vocals on tracks but fans can’t seem to get Ocean by his lonesome. Until last night. Ocean broke his silence musically by releasing the lyrics and audio to a new track, “Memrise on his Tumblr page”.

Short of two minutes in length, “Memrise” is all harmony, rough in quality with Ocean singing, “I memrise’d them … wayward expression. Never look down, never let me see you down.” The track of course isn’t going to fully satisfy Ocean fans but it’s a bone at least. Now they, along with the rest of the world await when Frank’s sophomore album is coming.
