A New Year's message on his Tumblr account hints that 2018 could bring an upturn in his output.

In November, fans picked up on a hint that Ocean has a complete studio album in his possession, and is awaiting the right time for release. 2016 wasn't a totally quiet year for Frank, who released standalone singles like "Provider" and "Chanel." If you liked those songs, it seems like you're going to love what Ocean has up his sleeve in the New Year.
