Having originally previewed the track “Provider” in August of this year, Frank Ocean has taken to his Blonded YouTube channel to lift the lid on a somewhat mysterious lyric video.
The long-awaited visual accompaniment to the romantic melancholia of the track itself could be seen as slightly out of place. Simultaneously however, the lyric video is full of what can only be assumed as hidden references to both the past, present, and future-dated work of Frank Ocean. Whether the “model 60” inscription shown on the deconstructed cassette player around which the video is based is anything to go off remains to be seen.
But given his reputation for the low-key unveiling of many a project and his expansive body of work, it would come as little to no surprise if the release of this lyric video is a sign of bigger, more official things to come. Stay tuned for further updates and enjoy another listening of the perfect couch-day lullaby above.
