If you’ve been under a rock, you may have missed the release of one of the most innovative albums of our time. The great and powerful Frank Ocean finally blessed us all, quenching our four year thirst with a brand new album entitled Blonde. The 17 track masterpiece is a work like no other, bursting the barriers of any music genre we have come to know.
I’m honestly having a hard time putting the right adjectives to his sound, but let’s just say you don’t want to be the last of your friends to hop on board with ‘Blonde’. If you feel you don’t have the time to just sit and absorb Frank’s feelings, don’t fret. This album is the perfect soundtrack to everyday leisure. So plug in, press play, and listen while doing a few of these activities:
TAKING A BATH
Who doesn’t love a good soak while listening to some great music? Frank’s new body of work is the perfect mix of mellow and powerful, which will keep you relaxed but also allow your mind to wander freely.
Not like you need an excuse to drink more wine, but just in case you do, make sure ‘Blonde’ is playing in the background. It will set the perfect mood, and is the cherry on top to your relax-after-work cake. Warning: you may end up texting your ex or crying uncontrollably…. don’t drink too much!
GOING FOR A WALK
Most of us like walking around with some tunes, but take an adventure with Blonde and you may look at the world from a whole new set of eyes. Suddenly the tourists walking too slow in front of you aren’t so upsetting…
LAYING IN BED WITH BAE
It’s a weekend morning. Neither one of you have any obligations. You’re both feeling lazy. Blonde is the perfect excuse to cuddle up with your significant other for just a few hours longer. Don’t be surprised if the two of you get extremely mushy while listening….. this is Frank Ocean we’re talking about.
The next time you feel like bending yourself into a pretzel, let Blonde accompany you. This album is like an ongoing, ebbing flow of sound which is perfect for the peaceful environment needed for yoga. Free your mind, and say a resounding ‘Namaste’ while the Ocean plays behind you (see what I did there)
