Frank Ocean shares new music on Blonded Radio for ‘Channel Orange’ 10th anniversary

A new, 35-minute instrumental soundtracks an interview about microdosing


Frank Ocean has shared new music to mark the 10th anniversary of his debut album, 'Channel Orange'.

Yesterday (July 10th), the artist included new material on Episode 12 of his Blonded Radio show for Apple Music 1. Marking the first episode of the radio show since a Christmas special last year, the episode features a 35-minute instrumental produced by Ocean, which soundtracks a conversation about microdosing between the singer-songwriter and so-called "father of Microdosing" Dr. James Fadiman.

Released concurrently with Episode 012, Episode 013, while not featuring new music, includes a conversation between Ocean and Master Mingtong Gu about self-realisation. Listen to both episodes here.

As well as last year's Christmas special, Ocean has previously used his Blonded Radio show to debut new music, sharing a remix by Arca, as well as other new tracks, in 2019.

Released on Def Jam on July 10th, 2012, 'Channel Orange' was met with widespread critical acclaim and has since appeared on several decade-end and all-time critics' lists.
