If you were under the assumption Frank Ocean was going to leave Channel Orange with no visual aids to go by, just know you’re not alone. This guy here did too. Thankfully, we get at least one in the form of the initial song to have everyone going crazy over, “Pyramids.”
As with Frankie, nothing goes as planned or is released as scheduled. So now that the accompanying visual has arrived, does it live up to the complexity the audio provided when it crash landed earlier this summer? And is too much to ask for maybe one or two more visuals from the project? Like, you know, say a “Pilot Jones/Crack Rock” hybrid? Or maybe one for “Bad Religion.” There’s options on that album, Frank!
SNL kicked of its 38th season and Ocean was the show’s musical guest last night and he performed two songs to perfection. You can catch “Thinking About You” and “Pyramids” – both featuring John Mayer on guitar – below.
