Frank Ocean-Sweet Life

Frank has kindly liberated another track from the upcoming Channel Orange album (which is now a mere 11 days away), this time showing off his work with Pharrel, who helms the production here.

Pharrell’s recent board work has shown a return to form and this is no different, capturing that quintessential N*E*R*D vibe with soft keys, crashing live percussion and huge verse-to-hook steps, providing the sort of eclectic backdrop that Frank thrives upon. The vocals are an excellent mix of effortless in the verses and passionate on the hook, following the pattern of the production and actually making for one of the more conventionally structured tracks we’ve heard from him. It’s a classy performance that blends soul, alternative and R&B, and added to the strong production, the signs are good heading into that LP.
