Frank Ocean's follow-up to the acclaimed, awesome Channel Orange is nearly here. The artist posted an image to his website alongside the words "I got two versions" and the hashtags #issue1, #album3, #july2015, and #boysdontcry. A spokesperson confirmed to Billboard that Ocean will launch both a magazine and an album in July, though neither has a title yet. Boys Don't Cry would seem a good guess for now, but who knows? The Cure might have something to say about that.

If you haven't heard Frank Ocean before, you should. Channel Orange is a dazzlingly original R&B masterpiece with gorgeous, unorthodox production and vocals, and deservedly won a Grammy for "Best Urban Contemporary Album." Here's Ocean performing lead single "Thinkin Bout You" on Saturday Night Live in 2012:
