Frank Ocean has quickly proven himself to be among the most gifted singer-songwriters of his generation.

Channel Orange (stylized as channel ORANGE) is the debut studio album of American singer-songwriter Frank Ocean, released July 10, 2012, on Def Jam Recordings. After releasing his 2011 debut mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra,he started writing songs with Malay, a producer and songwriter who assisted him with recording the album at EastWest Studios in Hollywood.

One listen to Channel Orange makes it obvious that he is as free as an artist as he is as a man. The album doesn't have as many slyly powerful hooks as Nostalgia, Ultra, but Ocean's descriptive and subtle storytelling is taken to a higher level.

Listen free to Frank Ocean – channel ORANGE (Start, Thinkin Bout You and more).
